Stopped by Djokovic

19.05.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 2

Roger's quest for back-to-back claycourt titles was ended by a 2-6, 6-7(4) defeat in the semi-final in Rome against Novak Djokovic.

Roger was broken twice in the opening set in their first encounter since the US Open last year. Roger was constantly under pressure and could not keep up with Djokovic's pace in the rallies. After falling a break back in the second set as well, Roger started to play more aggressively, varying his game and broke back after saving a match point. But in the following tie-break, Djokovic made the crucial points to win the match and book a spot in the final against Rafael Nadal.

Roger, I know you tried, you had some good shots but everyone knows you can do better, you are not a regular tennis player, you have been named champion many times, you are truly awesome when you are totally concentrated. And remember when the crowd screams your name there are also fans all over the world cheering for you. You are the best Roger, all the best for Roland Garros COME ON ROGER!!!

I don't know if this was because you are tired (as news says so) or something else which brought you to loose this match, but what is Very Important, is that you'll be in Perfect Shape for RG, Wimbledon and the Olympics, ...

Dear Roger. We were there (-:. It was great to see you playing for the first time. You looked tired which is understable after such a tiresome but succesful period of time. We will never forget this event, although we believed in your victory until the end. We wish you all the best and please win RG (-:.

you looked strained and no game plan, did not seem to know what fazer.Ele played very well but if you're more focused, more confident just could reverse.
Now it's rest and prepare more .. God bless you Roger
