Roger defeated in semis

13.11.2010 | Tennis, Starseite 2

Roger will still have to wait to play his first Paris Masters final. He had to accept a 6-7(7), 7-6(1), 6-7(4) defeat against France's Gaël Monfils in the semi-final in Paris today.

Our champ fought out an enthralling contest with Monfils. The match was as tight as can be, requiring three tie-breaks to settle matters. Both players showed great tennis and made no presents. It was until the end of the second set when, needing to level things to stay in the match, Roger raised his game to snatch the tie-break and take the match into a third set. Roger then raced to a 4-1 lead in the deciding set and looked to be on course for a spot in the final. But his French opponent fought hard, battling his way back into the contest and finally even win the match in the last tie-break. Roger unfortunately could not make use of his 5 break-points.

Fantastic match against Monfils - best of the tournament. You may have lost but you achieved much. Going to the O2 to see you in action, can't wait. Lots of luck at the O2.

Hi ROGI !!!

Well, so many things were achieved in Paris Bercy:
1st reaching the simifinal first time in Bercy
2nd 7 consecutive years with 60+ wins
3rd 8 consecutive years end within top 2 ranking

So now it's better to focus on ATP finals in London to gain points as much as possible to reduce the gap..

Best wishes 4 you

Good luck for ATP finals in London

Forever your friend

OMG. So much pressure. I hope Roger doesn't actually read these posts. Just let the man be for God's sake. He will do what has to be done as always. Which is to give his all. Stop pressuring him!

now c'mon finish the season on a high & get a roland garros crown by defeating rafa to make up for the match pt. losses this year. LET MY FAITH STAND THAT U ARE "THE GREATEST EVER" & SHOW THE TRUE ROGER, ONCE AGAIN TO EVERYBODY.

devastating loss.....how can u lose after having 5 match pts. I THOUGHT OF BANGING MY HEAD AGAINST THE WALL. rafa or murray or novak won't ever lose from such a position, then why u? 4 times in a year u fail to finish the match. I thought of giving up on u. U need to be more aggressive on the finishing pts & should go for winners rather than seeking for opponent's error.
