Roger defeated in 5 sets

10.09.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger had to end his quest for another US Open title with a 7-6(9), 6-4, 3-6, 2-6, 5-7 defeat against Novak Djokovic in the semi-final today.

 

Roger had a tough day as it is only the second time in a total of 184 matches that he has been beaten after leading by two sets. The loss means he will finish a season without a grand slam title for the first time since 2002.

Everything looked perfect in the beginning as Roger booked the first two sets and was playing really well. It was in the two following two sets that Djokovic raised his level of play while Roger did not quite keep up. Roger got everything back together in the final set, taking it to 40-15 on his serve at 5-3. But an incredibly hard forehand from the Serb and one of Roger's balls just barely touching the net and sailing into the out kept him from clinching the victory. Djokovic went sailing through and secured the win after over four hours of play.

Hi Roger: That was one of the most heartbreaking defeats that I have ever witnessed. Keep one thing in mind. You did not choke. You got your first serves in. Unfortunately, when playing the #1 player in the world, one can get broken. You handled Novak better than Rafa did. Keep going!!

Roger:

keep working hard! you are SO CLOSE to winning another one or three of these majors. i was pulling for you so much at roland garros this year and the us open. it looked like you had your best chance ever to beat nadal at RG, and you deserved just as much as Djokovic to win the US open semi this year. you are doing awesomely to be this close still! keep up the good work, and they'll start to go your way again! (and keep enjoying life and tennis) YR AWESOME!

dude im also a RF fan,i also want him to be no1 again and i only watch his matches , we all know that he is the greatest player who ever played the game.I think the video has some solid reasons that why i shared it and the diaper one is really stupid but still he also has to give time to his family.
I m a big of him when i play tennis i try to copy his style and his shots.He has been sponsored by nike and wilson that why i use these brands , play with blx six.one tour. i support him

Federer is playing incredible! If he keeps his patience until next year slams, he could win all the four of them.

THIS IS THE MOST STUPID VIDEO EVER .. ROGER FEDERER WILL NEVER BE NUMBER 1 AGAIN BECAUSE HE IS CHANGING DIAPERS FOR HIS TWINS .. WHAT IS THAT SHIT
THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE TO SAY SO ABOUT ROGER .. SIMPLY IF YOU DON'T LIKE ROGER THERE IS NO ONE GONE FORCE YOU TO DO .. BUT NOT TO SAY THAT
ALL THE REASON IS TOTALLY WRONG .. IF ROGER WANT TO BE NUMBER 1 HE WILL IT'S JUST BACK TO ROGER HIMSELF .. SO PLEASE STOP SAY THAT ABOUT A BIG LEGEND LIKE ROGER FEDERER
