Roger suffers defeat number two

26.02.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 2

Roger was defeated in straight sets by Novak Djokovic in the final of the Dubai Tennis Championships today.

"I had a tough start and a tough end but Novak played a solid tournament all the way through and deserved to win,” Roger said. “It was a tough end for me but still a great tournament."

Roger faced a strong Djokovic right from the start and was clearly dominated in the first set. It looked better in set number two as he broke the Serb to take a 3-1 lead. But unfortunately he had to constantly battle with problems with his timing and rhythm, losing 20 of the following 25 points and eventually the match.

Same curiosity: why the Dubai 300 points cannot replace one of the three ATP 500 with no points for Roger ranking?

Dear Roger
I'm delighted reading a voice of sence, voice of wisdom here. It is not a place to chat, but I have to congratulate JODOUG from USA! I was very hurt after your second loss to that player, but reading some comments posted by your fans I got much calmer. Yes, this is the way to look at you and your wins or losses. I would only add:if you are healthy and focused, you can beat everyone on the list, but you have to play focused!
I wish you all the best and good luck
Love, Mimi

we love to watch your beautiful game. win or lose no one will ever play like you. you are doing a lot better than sampras at this age. he won no titles age 29 & 30. you have already won 4. he also lost to a lot of players ranked 50 and below. you have not. it is unrealistic to expect you won't have trouble with the top 3. they are 5 and 6 yrs younger. that is life and that is sport. they will have trouble with the group behind them, and delpo is back. good luck in usa & all 2011. luv ya always.

Ranjona, I was asking the same question. The 300 points form Dubai are on the list with non countable tournaments. That has something to do with 4 ATP 500 tournaments you have to participate in as a top 30-player. Roger has a 0 for Hamburg, Wasington and Tokyo, for not playing enough 500 tournaments in 2010. But I don't know why one of those zero's is not replaced by the 300 points from Doha. Does anyone know?

The dearest Roger, the best luck in Indian Wells! Your technical game is more interesting than force playing of other players, keep it up! You´re the best although you aren´t No. 1 on rank, cause nobody on circuit is the same as you.
Good health and rest, love and support and admire, nice days in USA for all your family, keep care and god bless you!

What do you mean Djokovic is powerful for Roger? Which way? Physically? How did he become powerful all-of-a-sudden within two months after heavy thrashing at WTF? Till now, he's no different than his 2008 spell. In 2008, he won AO, Indian Wells and then.... So, have patience, wait and watch. If you want to take a leak urgently, go to their site and do so. It's not welcome here. This is GOAT Roger Federer's site.
