Out against Roddick

27.03.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger lost in the third round of Miami today against Andy Roddick 6-7(4), 6-1, 4-6.

Both player started well, holding serve in the first set with Roddick finally taking it in the tie-breaker. In the second set, Roger broke Roddick three times and showed great tennis. In the final set, Roger did not manage to take advantage of the four break chances he had, whereas Roddick seized his only opportunity of the match to seal the victory after two hours of play.

"I had my chances," Roger said after the match. "I could have been up a break early in the third, but he did well to fight off those break points. He served really well. I didn’t just get the lucky break today that I got in Indian Wells. I regret missing my opportunities and giving myself maybe a chance for tomorrow. Then you never know how things all of a sudden turn out in the tournament. It is what it is and I’ll deal with it the way I always have.”

Next up are the Mutua Madrid Open - the tournament starts on 7 May.

Roger, have a good rest and prepare for new titles. As for participating in Monaco, I'm sure you'll make the right decision whatever it may be.
Best of luck, Roger.

Hi Roger - Listening to the pleas that you play in April, I want to say that I am glad that you are not playing in April. You have a very packed schedule this year and you need this time to recuperate, train and prepare for a very demanding schedule that includes the Olympics. You are wise, as always. I want to add that your remarks after the Roddick match show your heart and your dedication to tennis. Bravo!
