Roger defeated in high-class|Final

01.01.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 3

Roger was defeated 6-7(4), 6-7(3) by Rafael Nadal in the final of the World Tennis Championships exhibition tournament in Abu Dhabi today.

Roger took a 3-0 lead in the first tiebreaker, but then simply committed too many unforced errors and eventually dropped the set. The second set also proved to be a tough fight as neither of the two players was able to score a break. Eventually it was Nadal's serve that helped him clinch the match in the second tie-breaker.

Roger will now make his way to Doha for the Qatar Exxonmobil Open which starts on Monday.

Hello Roger,

Wonderful to see you back on the courts again!

Obviously, I would have been elated to see you win the the final in Abu Dhabi against Rafa, however, these two matches were superb preparation for the upcoming Australian Open.

I wish you the very best in Doha and again, a blessed new year to you and your family.

Lleyton Hewitt in a recent interview told us that he is more motivated having beaten you in Basel .
Roger I wish you the very best for the Qatar Open
Kindest regards

Like you, the dream final for me is to watch Roger play.Marat Safin/Federer AO some years ago was to me a dream--both very talented--fabulous
Email to me from one of Rogers European fans. ' I would not shorten my Xmas hols for ANYONE except to fly to Aust and watch Roger Federer

Hello Roger
I am so pleased that you were able to have 2 great practice matches before the 2011 season begins. As you say a very good way to know where your game is.Nothing like match practice.

This week our summer of tennis begins in Brisbane and the Hopman Cup in Perth.
Some wonderful articles have been written about Roger Federer. You are such an inspiration to players and non players--the good players want to play the one and only 'genius'--many of the former BUT only one of the latter
