A clear loss against Rafa

02.04.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger suffered a clear 3-6, 2-6 loss against Rafael Nadal in the semi-final of the Sony Ericsson Open in Key Biscayne.

"It just got worse and worse. And when I had a chance I simply played too weak. Today was nothing to write about, I'm afraid," Roger commented. "I know that I can do many more things in the game. I'm very excited by what's to come still."

It was no easy task playing against a very strong Nadal as the Spaniard never dropped his serve and converted four of five break-point chances, committing only 10 unforced errors. Roger counted a total of 31 unforced errors and shanked several shots.

Next on Roger's schedule is the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters which starts in a week and opens the clay-season for Roger.

In my mind there is only one reason to celebrate Djokavic's absence and that is a tournament in which we don't have to see beating of breasts and unruly fans and a lot of junk. I am biased - I happily acknowledge that I prefer the beauty of Roger's game and even the physicality of Rafa's (who does not engage in dumb theatrics). I am looking forward to a tournament that is tennis without all the disrespect that Dj brings. A nice silence. I look forward to seeing RF's beautiful dancer's lines.

Does Djoko's run surprises you this year, has it taken a new dimension?
- No, I'm not surprised. I knew he had the calibre and the means to achieve such performances. However, being able to string together his performances at the end of last year and in 2011 is really impressive, especially since noone had manage to do it before. This streak is a really good news for our sport, it's better to talk about that than about doping or online betting"

I almost start to think that they want me to retire earlier. Yet I'm far from all of this, and there are still many players that perform after 30."

"Are you surprised Djoko withdrew?
- Yes because he lives here I think, but why did he withdraw?

- Ah, that's good because at least it's not surgery ans this will allow him to rest.

"We have asked Roger about the famous idea of decline and the annoyance that comes with it. Roger answered bluntly: "It's true that it goes very quickly, one day you're at the top and the next people talk to you about decline just because you've lost a match. And it's true that it's hard to answer these kind of questions, especially after a defeat against players you wish you had beaten. I think after you reach 30 years old, one thinks you're finished, that it's common, I almost start to think th
