Roger defeated in round three

12.05.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger has dropped out of the Rome Masters in round three, losing 6-4, 6-7(2), 6-7(4) to Richard Gasquet. Our champ made a number of uncharacteristic errors against his French opponent, who he had beaten in their previous eight meetings.

 

"I should never have lost this match," said Roger. "He knows how close he came to losing. I had multiple chances but I couldn't make the difference. I thought I was playing well but he served better toward the end and hung in there. I didn't feel I could break and it's no fun to play like that".

 

Roger started into the match well and broke Gasquet in the seventh game of the first set before serving it out. In the second set he already had a 4-2 lead when Gasquet fought his way back into the match and even taking the tiebreak. The third set also had to be decided in a tiebreak where Roger just committed too many errors in the end.

Up next is the second Grand Slam tournament of the year: Roland Garros. "I'm looking forward to a few days to stay mentally and physically fresh and practice very hard" said Roger.

I love the blue shirt Roger wore for the past I think 3 tournaments. It looks great... we need to see that confident Roger on the courts again. You have the game but just get that confidence back.... go on the courts like you used to believing that no one can beat you. Having said all that I still think you are the greatest sportman. Win or loose you're the best and now with that fabulous family you have.... what more can a man ask for? All the best for the French open.

bUENA SUERTE.
ESPERO QUE ESTÉS INSPIRADO Y NOS MUESTRES TU MARAVILLOSO TENIS.
RECUERDA A AGASSI , CUANDO JUGABA CONTRA TÍ, TENÍA MÁS AÑOS QUE TÚ EN ESTE MOMENTO, Y FUERON PARTIDOS MEMORABLES, DONDE AMBOS DIERON LO MEJOR, TU MAS JOVEN PERO ÉL CON 33 AÑOS QUIZÁS ,
EL SEGUIA CONCENTRADO, CON GANAS DE GANAR, TU ERES MEJOR QUE AGASSI.
TU LO SABES , Y NOSOTROS TAMBIEN.
VE Y HAZ UN GRAN TORNEO

All the best for RG, Roger. You've got the goods to get it all!

It's nice that you're not in the spotlight now. You can leave that to Djokovic and Nadal - they both have a lot to live up to.

This number 1 fan believes in you and your abilities. It will be a joy to watch you play. God Bless you and keep you safe at RG.

GOOD LUCK.
I HOPE THAT YOU ARE INSPIRED AND WE SHOW THIS GREAT TENNIS.
Agassi REMINDS WHEN PLAYED AGAINST YOU, YOU HAD MORE THAN YEARS AT THIS MOMENT, AND THEY WERE MEMORABLE MATCHES WHERE BOTH GAVE U.S. THE BEST, BUT YOUNGER YOU WITH 33 YEARS HE MAY,
He was still concentrated with desire to win, you're better than Agassi.
YOU KNOW, AND WE ALSO.
GO AND MAKE A BIG TOURNAMENT
