Roger defeated in final

05.06.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 3

Roger was defeated 5-7, 6-7, 7-5 and 1-6 by Rafael Nadal in the final of the French Open today.


"It was an exceptional performance by Rafa. He's beaten me again. I'm sad but I am happy to play him," Roger said. "He is the best player on clay but I am proud of the way I have played over the last two weeks but I couldn't do enough against him. It was important to get into another grand slam final."

Roger started strong, breaking Nadal in the second game and taking a 5-2 lead. But it was just when Roger was serving for the set that Nadal found his rhythm and won the following five games to take the first set. The Spaniard continued to play almost without errors into the second set, but Roger managed to hold onto his service games and then break to level 4-4 - only to be broken again in return. Play was suspended for a few minutes due to rain - with Roger coming back onto the court to break Nadal and bring the set into a tie-break - which Roger unfortunately clearly lost.
Roger seemed to change his game in the third set and was at his best at 5-5 to go on and book the set onto his account. He continued well into the fourth set and had several break-points, but it was Nadal who made use of the chances he was given and left no doubt that he wanted the match to come to an end.

Roger will now open the grass court season this week at the tournament in Halle (GER).

4-You shouldn't be too worried to play against him if you know what to expect, that's not to worry that's a positive thing, that means that if you know what to expect you can do something about it, is not like you would have to be guessing on court the whole time, he stocked to his plan the whole match, he always does. You just have to make little adjustments to take full advantage of your opportunities; no one or anything can stand in your way, if you don't let it.

5-Change your mind set, no matter how good of tough he is you can beat him any time, but you have to be completely convinced. No one is unbeatable, nothing is unbreakable, everything is possible and you can make it happen, you have the capacity. You can do it Roger! Just truly believe it!

6-I know is very difficult I know is way much harder that it seems to be out there, but it's doable, it's an everyday task to build a lot of self love a solid super high self-esteem, keep cultivating patience, enable yourself to believe insanely in yourself, there're no limits, you are free!

I enjoyed as always watching you playing,don´t be dissapointed you played incredible at the semifinal to reach the final,I thought before that the reason you cant beat Nadal is only in your mind but you made your game and it wasn´t easy to make a point he goes for all the balls,anyway we love you and support for ever

I never have loved a star before exept you.

My only hero is you.

I don't really understand you tried to have choice backhand drive in service return even under 170km speed of nadal's serve.

YOU have a confiedence of you backhand slice more.

Nadal is not a human but kind of animal.
But his speed is rapidly down as getting age.

Please keep your balance untill 2 years at least. and then you will step up No.1 again.
