Roger misses final in New York

12.09.2010 | Tennis

Roger was defeated by Novak Djokovic 7-5, 1-6, 7-5, 2-6 and 5-7 in today's semi-final at the US Open.

 

This means that unfortunately Roger will not play Rafa in what would have been the eighth Grand Slam championship match between tennis' top two men — and first such showdown at Flushing Meadows. It is the first time in the last seven years that Roger misses the final of the US Open. He has won five trophies from 2004-08.

 

Roger saw two match points today but let them slip away. He also committed too many errors during the critical phases of the match and was often not able to count on his first serve. The two players showed a most entertaining display of tennis on an amazingly high level - the match was only over after 3 hours and 44 minutes.

Roger can stop Nadal inside the court, with two men at top. Even about clay.............Go Rog!!

u guys r incredible!!!

Our biggest hope for Rog´s return to top is the Nadal knees?????

u guys sucks!!!

Roger must be ashamed of trash fans like u......

yes, Roger, u gotta STOP BEATING yourself w/ a poor 40% 1st-service games alongside 66 UNFORCED ERRORS 'cuz u're making it WAY TOO EASY for your opponent(s) to win against u.

Key is to beat up on your opponent(s), and NOT beatin' yourself down in aces,

Dear Champ,

what ANAL's fans failed to understand-n-realize is that WE'D RATHER BE ROOTIN' FOR U BY WATCHIN' U PLAY, NO MATTER WHAT, THAN ANYTHIN' ELSE!!!

it pains-n-grieves us all that u didn't make it to the final for this was indeed a heart-break

And nobody does it better
Though sometimes I wish someone could
Nobody does it quite the way you do
Why'd you have to be so good?
There's some kind of magic inside you
That keeps me from

Want to also quote an article which I came across a while ago, which best describe why we love you, Roger, so much:

You will never find Roger play in a blur, whizzing maniacally from one side of the court to the other, grunting and crushing the tennis

Nobody does it better
Makes me feel sad for the rest
Nobody does it half as good as you
Baby, you're the best
