Roger out against Tsonga

12.08.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger lost his second match within a month to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, ending his quest for the Montreal Masters title after a 6-7(3), 6-4, 1-6.

Roger was a further top seed after Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray to exit the event. “I played two matches, I feel good physically,” he said. “Jo played an excellent third set. The first two sets were tighter. I should maybe have won the first one, I had some opportunities."

Thank you Dutchlady--much appreciated.
I think that those of us that DO play tennis such as yourself and Hughsie do understand the game, the pressures, the ups and downs--NEVER easy as you have a ball,opponent and a net to contend with.
Fortunately Roger has played hundreds & hundreds of matches at the very highest level for SO long.Really he is amazing and as for that body of his wouldn't we all like to have a little of it in our own?
Joke--fully agree with you--rudeness is lowly

Roger, in my personal opinion, into the three matchs that you have lost against Tsonga, he became stronger than you in the last sets, then you need be careful with your phisical condition and your concentration on the first sets, but over all in the last and definitly ultimate sets, especially with Tsonga.

Big welcome to the USA, dear Roger.

You're always, ALWAYS a pleasure to see on court. Not saying I'm not disappointed when you lose a match, but am NEVER disappointed in you. You are a phenomenal person/athlete. No other current tennis player possesses your outstanding qualities.

Cheers and well wishes in Cincinnati.

Hi Roger,
I speak as a tennis player, and fan of yours

You need to clean up that forehand. Some of it must be rust, surely, though it seems your body is off-balance a lot more than usual when u swing through. What once used to be a weapon, now appears to be a hindrance. I hope u find that jump in your step again so u can get to the ball earlier.

From having watched many many of your matches, it seems u only lose when your serve is off. Is it nerves? I'm curious what kind of help u have sou
