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.

Dear Roger, I had a ticket for the AO final, having hoped to watch you win it. With all due respect to the players, what a boring spectacle it turned out to be! There was far too much baseline slugging and most points were lost by error rather than won. Your matches are mesmerising and inspiring even when you lose them. You make tennis an art form and that is why the game needs you. The world beyond tennis needs you too. Go Roger for the rest of this year and for many years to come!

3-Think positive and constructively, relax, rest and enjoy the pretty little details of life.
Changing subjects whenever your beautiful skin gets irritated get spring thermal water and spray it on, that will help a lot and remember to wear some hypoallergenic moisturizer at night.
I miss you! I hope you enjoy this time off, use it, be free, express yourself, and be happy.
