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.

RAWPP is making a lot of sense Roger..c'mon..lets go to Monte Carlo..please..
it's not about the points..you'll always be number one..who cares about the points..if you look back, this has been an amazing season..lets keep rolling...i mean taking a month off..i don't know..you know whats best for you but the thing is..the more you play the greater the chances..besides if you play Monte Carlo..it might be your 20th ATP 1000 and it might aid in getting your 17th grand slam
love you forever xD

Roger has 180 pts to defend for his QF performance at Monte Carlo '11. But besides pts to defend, look what that extra clay court prep did in '11: it resulted in Roger making the FINAL of Roland Garros! So there's 2 great reasons to do Monte Carlo! Please...

(Looking back more: Missing MC '10, Fed's great 23 consecutive SFs@majors was then snapped@RG '10. Attending MC '09, Fed would go on to triumph@RG '09. Of course, history is history as anything can happen this year.)

Roger, It is sad not to see you in semis in Miami. You should of play against Fish today (not Monaco). I hope you will handle the recent loss like you did it last year after US Open. I know you skipping Monte carlo, but plan to go to Mutua. Will be waiting (whole month!) for your come back. The number 1 is you. Every one know this. Please relax, rest and get back to work which all youyr fans incudng me await. Good luck!

Hi, Roger!
It might be a bit strange feeling to play against Andy after Madison. And for me that game was like a comfort for him and all the credit to him because he showed that with heart all is possible. And that is what we have seen in your game, passion which is absolutely beautiful. Passion which pours out from Love. Keep on going, Roger. Your the man who can achieve all the dreams.
