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.

I am so, soo happy when see how many people suport you from my country Serbia :] How they call the land of Novak Djokovic...
Roger you are the best ever! You are born for tennis. Noone can play this game like you! Every final without you is boring. Can't wait to see you again on the court. Good luck maestro! Greetings from Serbia!

Roger sei comunque il migliore. Coraggio, anche se quest'anno non hai vinto Slam non importa, sei l'unico che può impensierire e battere Nole.

GOOD LUCK THIS WEEKEND RE DAVIS CUP VS AUSTRALIA...

Pls. focus-n-redirect your energy on CLOSIN' OUT future matches, esp. when u're ahead vs. when u're behind~!

There are STUPID critics on this site asking for your retirement, which is completely silly since u still got it, but u must admit that it's gettin' tougher as u're goin' 30+... PLS. MAINTAIN YOUR FOCUS AT ALL TIMES IN CLOSING OUT MATCHES~!!

Also, this wuz A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY 2 NOT ONLY WINNIN' YOUR 6TH USO TROPHY, but to better your H2H against RN in so many ways. but, alas, ANOTHER WASTED 2-0 LOSS THIS YEAR, YOUR 2ND OVERALL!

This is an alarmin' criminally arrested trend: PLS. RETOOL YOUR FOCUS IF U WANNA WIN 2012 OLYMPICS, IF U KEEP ON COLLAPSIN', INSTEAD OF CLOSIN' OUT YOUR MATCHES, @ THE END, ESP. WHEN U'RE CLEARLY AHEAD!

THIS BLOWS: RN had 2 fight so hard 2b in it, while u were ahead by 2-0!!
