Roger loses in three sets

27.01.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger was defeated 6-7(3), 5-7 and 4-6 by Novak Djokovic in the semi-final of the Australian Open today. Roger struggled to stem Djokovic's aggressive assault, and also had problems with his serve.

Roger was unable to dominate the match and had troubles holding up right from the start. Djokovic won a tense 57-minute first set in a tie-break. Hopes of a comeback for Roger evaporated in the second set when, having fought back from a break down to lead 5-2, he was swept aside by a run of five consecutive games for the Serbian.

Roger was broken once again to 1-2 in the third set, before fighting his way back to 4-4 with a threaded forehand down the line. But unfortunately it was only a brief moment of hope as he went on to save three match-points in the final game and eventually had to admit the defeat.

The loss leaves Roger without one of the four Grand Slam titles for the first time since 2003.

I’m really angry by really your bullshit playing, you didn’t have any Strategy.

Dear Roger,
I didn't watch all of the final because it was not interesting with you not playing. I missed seeing your beautiful tennis and your classy conduct. Looking forward to watching you play in Dubai. Sending you lots of love and best wishes!

Fed's stats from this match compared with SF USO - when Fed won 7-6(3), 7-5, 7-5

(US09SF / AO11SF)
1st serve % = 57 - 60
1st serve points won % = 77 - 71
*Fed made MORE 1st serves but won FEWER of them*

2nd serve points won % = 61 - 48
*Fed lost a LOT more points on his 2nd serve*

Unforced errors = 33 - 44
Winners = 49 - 35
*Fed made +10 UE and hit -14 W, that's a swing of 24pts (Djoko won by 7pts in total)*

Djoko won a) returned 2nd serve brilliantly b) Fed was sloppy from t

Novak played this match with a type of confidence I have never seen from him before. Why?

Novak is not playing as 'Novak' at the moment; he's playing as Serbia.

As far as he's concerned, he is out there playing for his country, not as himself; this is where I believe his new found confidence has come from. The fact that he dedicated his win to his country, only cements this theory.

Anyone with me?
