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.

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

You know what? I'm not that sad! I mean, of course I would have loved Federer to have posted that historic win but what I'm seeing is that he's quietly edging in on his least-favourite surface, clay. And where is Nadal on grass? I'll be impressed if he re

Dearest Roger,

You came close, and I'm so sad this didn't happen for you. But I know you can win the French Open. You played well throughout the clay court season - you really have mastered all surfaces. You're moving so much better on clay this yea

Numbers say everything. Rafa Nadal is the number one: 6-1. All of you should know it.

Roger, you said Nadal deserved to win the French after the final. That is not true. You deserved to win. You are the best player in history. Nobody except for you should win that tournament. You are the more complete player. Now go back next year an
