Roger stunned by Tsonga

29.06.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger was upset by Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the quarterfinals in Wimbledon today: 6-3, 7-6(3), 4-6, 4-6, 4-6.

“I think my game was plenty good enough this year to win the tournament, but unfortunately there’s only one who can win it, and the rest go home empty-handed,” Roger said. “That’s what happened to me today, but Jo played an amazing match.”

Roger started well, converting a break point in Tsonga's first service game and held the lead to take the set. He held in the second which he finally won in the tie-break.
But Tsonga broke our champ in the third set and went on to do so in sets four and five - to eventually end Roger's quest for a seventh Wimbledon crown.

Boting,

He is 29 years old, left his home and parents at a very young age and has supported them financially all his carrear. I doubt his father has any authority on him.

How was Nadal's father's reaction when he went 0-40 in 4th set. His actions screamed out, 'f**k!' Fed's father needs to have a father-son talk, that will go like this, 'You know son, I think you may have misunderstood me.......... When I said........... a man is incomplete until marriage, then he's finished, I didn't mean it for your tennis.'

To speak with Federer's own words we will see in 6 months (lol)

RF simply lost his unconditional will to win. And who could blame him: He reached his personal tennis carrear goal, he makes much more money off the court anyways, and he is living a happy carefree family life which has become the center of his life.
The only way I see him getting his unconditional will to win back is when his daughters are old enough and to say stuff like: "Daaaaddy, could you please win this time?"

***Nochweiterroger*** Totally agree with you...Roger Federer can and will hang around. His perseverance to work hard and reach the top, and mental strength will sure help him reach his goals on the tour. Just love the way he plays, its like music! :) Go Roger! :)

Wow, some comments that don't kiss his a.. He definitely needs to change his mindset and game to win.

True about RFs mindset, GAYALBATROSS (intersting username). He will have to change his thinking and play each match with energy, concentration, and with the intention to give his best on court. Throw all of it out on court, if it doesn't work, you have no regrets. Worst thing is wondering 'what if' because you never get that moment again. This is what Djoker and Nadal are doing and it is not rocket science or beyond Fed's ability.

The first one (the one underneath) should be RN's.
That's how RN and RF deal with their loss differently. Age doesn't matter, but the mindset does. That's why RF cannot achieve more with his gift. He is the victim of his own arrogance and stubbornness.

RF:
Well, except the score, many, many things went right. I thought I played a good match myself. I'm actually pretty pleased with my performance today. It's kind of hard going out of the tournament that way, but unfortunately it does happen sometimes.
At least it took him, you know, sort of a special performance to beat me, which is somewhat nice.
