Roger defeated in Shanghai

17.10.2010 | Tennis

Roger was defeated by Andy Murray 3-6, 2-6 in the final of the Shanghai Masters today.

 

"Andy had an outstanding tournament," Roger said. "I thought Andy played great today. He didn't give me many chances."

 

Roger had to deal with a break right from the start as he dropped serve in the opening game of the match - from leading 40-15. And unfortunately that was the way the match continued. Roger committed too many unforced errors and even when he placed his shots wunderfully, Murray managed to retrieve the ball from seemingly impossible situations. A second break at the end of the first set made everything clear for Murray.

Roger had two break points in the opening game of the second set, but the Scotsman did not allow him the chance to break him. Roger was troubled by the inconsistency on his groundstrokes, particularly his forehand. Another two break points later Roger still wasn't able to score a break, but lost his own service games to fall behind 1-3 and later 2-6.

 

Roger remains 3-2 ahead of Murray in their final duels including wins over the Scotsman at the 2008 US Open and this year's Australian Open. Thanks to having reached the final, Roger is set to move up to second in the world and has certainly made a solid start into the end of the 2010 season. Next up are Stockholm, Basel, Paris-Bercy and finally the ATP World Tour Finals in London.

Bad luck Roger. You played a good tournament but there are still things to change in your game. Keep working hard for the Barclay's World tour finals coming up and I know you will win there.

Good luck Roger for the rest of the year!!!

Dear Friends and Fans,

In some ATP Tennis Finals, there are less spectators than when Roger practises ! This link is from the kindness of *TRX*

Roger was practising in Stockholm's Arena. It felt to me like at least 3000 people there.
