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.

Dear Roger,
I could not write you right away. Whatever happens, you will be No. 1 for me and my friends here in Dubai. I prayed hard but Roland G. was not to be yours this year. Next year perhaps. Don't worry. Win Wimbledon! God bless. Annie

Dearest Roger,

What you seem to need to work on is your mentality. You have to be mentally ready to beat Rafael, to win the French Open. You have to be at least as mentally ready, as mentally strong as he is. It's very good to know that you realise

Nadal never wins easily against Roger. It is always a huge fight.

Roger can beat Nadal. It's not only possible, but probable.


In the end only kindness matters. To have the diplomacy to say, "Rafael deserved to win" !!! I am teaching my kids hu

2007 is Roger's big year. He does best in the odd numbered years! So, let's all keep praying for the next 12 months that he storms France in '07 and swoops up that trophy. We love Roger and we are confident he will win. Keep running, training, and pra
