Roger defeated by Nadal in thrilling final

11.06.2006 | Tennis

Unfortunately Roger was not able to make a huge tream come true today. He lost to Rafael Nadal at today's final of the French Open: 6-1, 1-6, 4-6, 6-7.

"Rafael totally deserved to win this tournament," Roger said after the match. The Spaniard extended his Roland Garros perfect record to 14-0 and his winning streak on clay to 60 matches, leaving Roger opponent one match shy of becoming the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to hold all four grand slams simultaneously.

Roger was in a class of his own in the first set, breaking twice a nervous Nadal. The 20-year-old Spaniard, however, hit back in the second and pocketed the third having saved four break points. He then broke in the first game of the fourth set but Roger needed only one break point to level at 5-5, only for Rafael Nadal to win the tiebreak 7-4 and the match after three hours and two minutes.

My dear Roger the great,

It would be an historical moment if you could win the French Open. But I still have complete faith in you that you will create the same opportunity for you again and will be successful next time.

Remember what you said one time: in life there are good and bad moments, the good ones are easy to live, but the bad ones are the ones you need to know how to live.

Doesn't matter, now think in Wimbledon.

Dearest Rogi
Maybe it seems late to post my comment now, one week after the final. But I think that's what I should do as one of your fans. There is no one who likes failure. But the cruelest thing is, there must be a loser in every match. Of course you
