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.

Keep up the hard work Roger, dont lose heart. On the 1st Match point Novak made an outstanding return of serve, so thats not your fault, And on the 2nd Match point your shot was clearly a winner untill it hit the Net Cord and went out, so thats bad luck again Roger. Just make sure you Serve a high percentage of your 1st serves and keep it low on the unforced errors, rest of your game is Excellent....

Good luck in Shanghai Masters and in O2 London. :-)
