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.

Roger, you are the most complete tennis player since Rod Laver - and destined to be the greatest ever. And as always, I picked you to win this match against Nadal, as even on French clay, I would never bet against you.

Your game was so devastating i

Don't worry Roger...Keep your head up. You made the final and next year I believe you can win it. You made your second straight grand slam final and you've won one. Next you have Wimbeldon and the U.S. Open. The world again will see you dominance on grass
