Roger out in quarters

15.04.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 2

Roger dropped out of the Monte Carlo Masters after a 4-6, 4-6 defeat against Jürgen Melzer (ATP 9) in the quarter-finals today.

“He did well and played aggressive. He didn't give me many chances,” Roger said. “I didn't think I played terrible. It's the first week of play [on clay] so I didn't expect to play my best. It's been a solid tournament.”

Melzer had to be treated due to back problems after the first game. But he came out strong, pushing Roger into defense again and again, causing our champ to make a total of 24 unforced errors throughout the one hour 44 minute contest, not being able to convert any of the 7 break-points. The Austrian, in turn, took his two break point opportunities with gusto.

Roger will get back onto court in the beginning of May in Spain, where he will participate in the Mutua Madrileña Masters.

There is no need to tell Our Champ that he has to change his game, strategy etc. He will be bounce back as he did in the last 2 or 3 months of 2010. And claiming ATP world tour finals title defeating top players including Rafa in finals. He knows his game better than anyone else.

Exciting to see him in action always........
One and only Number 1 King Federer

Confidence ? Motivation ? by any other name? something appeared to be missing in Monte Carlo but I surmise that it may be an illusion on our part ! look at his records the last 7 months: semis or better at all touneys he played , far from shabby ! that's definitely top of the class ! listen to Rog's post match interviews,his words are unequivocally clear, he has a PLAN ! he may not win every match as he used to, but there's no question, he still has the hunger and he will continue to astonish !
