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.

Looking at his schedule going forward, there is too much time between his tournaments. I think he need to play more to stay sharp and match tough.

Roger - hang in there buddy - there is a greatness about you and you will perservere. We have complete and total faith in you. Whatever you do from here on is a bonus - enjoy yourself - enjoy the game - hold your head up and just play your game. Watching you place is like art in motion - keep it up!!

Roger, just manage the unforced errors and starve your opponents any undeserved points. If you do that the "FRENCH OPEN" and the rest of the 2011 season is yours. As I see it, often your opponents benefit more from your careless unforced errors than from their skills. Good Luck Emperor!

Federer I am a big fan of yours, and I really know that you're coming back to number one. Well, you lost a match, that like yousaid, you never should have lost.

Well, I know that if you really practice very hard, and concentrate in your practice, and work very, very hard you can play in a level never seen before, you can superate even yourself. You can show to the world a level that is not even imaginable yet, like you did before. But you have to practice very hard.
I'm with you my friend.U
