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.

Roger you can play an excellent tournament in Paris, we're with you and you can surprise everybody! It's not easy, because of the incredible moment of Nole and Rafa is always a great champion, but the surface is good because of is faster since a couple of years, and that can be an advantage for you! the first round is not easy, because is playing a very good tennis even if that's not his favourite surface..but anyway it's a good chance to start the tournament in a positive way..so come on Roger!

Dutchlady, Thanks for that interview link!

There you go, Mats Wilander (one of the tennis greats) mentions "Roger Federer, the Greatest Player Of All Time and Rafa Nadal, the Greatest clay court player of all time"... Even other Greats know that but they don't want to admit it.

Wilander's words has much much more weight that Djoker's... LOL

Also it's not worth to compare any of the current top players (who can't play a set without looking/communicating to their box) to our great Champ.
