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.

You're on target.

1. Rog will win at least 4 more GSs.
2. Rog will regain the No.1 spot.
3. Rog will win the 2012 Olympic Singles Gold.
4. Rog will play till Brazil Olympics, when he's 36.

Glad to see you here again & delivering so vigorous & vibrant a defence of Roger!

Quote from your post above : ""A gem cannot be polished without friction, nor a man perfected without trials.""

Wow! Truer words never better said - well done - no need to HOPE he'll make one more, BECAUSE as long as he's playing, he'll make at least 4 more GSs - guaranteed :-)

Tx, YUKIMI~!

U're A-OK w/ moi 2...Only wish that our champ's fans were just as die-hard positive warriors like us, eh?!

Oh, well, time will tell: RF'LL BE COLLECTIN' AT LEAST 22 GS, INC. 1 OLYMPIC-GOLD-SINGLES, BY THE TIME HE DOES RETIRE AT RIPE 'OL MID-30s?

1-2 GS trophies per year till then, whaddya think?!?

VERY DOABLE, MOST CERTAINLY~!

Our champ's quite magnifique, no?!? oui, oui~!!

Hey CARMELI,

I didn't realize that before you said it. Thanks for pointing out that. Now I do agree, yes, there is an unprofessional side of RF, as an implication of what I said, that detracted his attention from tennis itself. For me, he sometimes bears something too commercial, fashionable, and superficial that give himself too much burden. Yes, there is a whole machine of money making behind him. I think I was watching tennis, and of course, I was watching not only tennis...

here's wishin' that u'd get ANOTHER chance at BEATIN' DJOKER @ USO~!

RN may have won last year's USO (due 2 Djoker's inability 2 keep it 2gether, esp. his poor serves~!), but THAT WUZ A 1-TIME ONLY 4 RN MAY NEVER EVER WIN USO OR WIMBLY EVER AGAIN~! yep, folks, u heard it here 1st, make a note of it, go bet on it~!

C'MON, CHAMP, NUTHIN' W/B BETTA-N-BRIGHTA THAN U ON THAT CENTRE CTS ANYWHERE, ESP. GS STAGE WHERE U TRULY BELONG 4 U KNOW HOW IT'S DONE~!

ps: PLS. ATTACK RN'S WOBBLY BACKHANDS

I don't have ANYBODY'S INTERESTS, but his and his alone~! I DON'T PARTICULARLY ENJOY SO MANY "BETRAYED-UNDERLYING SO-CALLED ROGER'S FANS" JUMPIN' THAT WIN-AT-ALL-COSTS BANDWAGONS ON RN/DJOKER/TOP 10 players~!

I wish 4 world-peace, i.e. that these betrayers would slink/slither away onto the other websites already, but heck, this is NOT a purrrrRFect world, one that our ONLY GOAT, aka ROGER, aka GOAT/EPOAT, aka LION KING OF TENNIS resides~!!

LONG LIVE THE KING, KING ROGER~!!

It's a tough loss, Roger, as you said.
Only you and Tsonga played like it's Wimbledon. This is especially for Tsonga who served brilliantly with a lot of net approach!
The most important is: Don't lose your confidence and keep improving on your serve, return, rally and your speed.
The win by Djo against Nadal 5 times in a row and in all kinds of surface provide you with valuable lessons to learn.
All the best!
