Roger defeated by Ernests Gulbis

27.04.2010 | Tennis

Roger crashed out in the second round of the clay-court Rome Masters today, losing in three sets to unseeded Latvian Ernests Gulbis 2-6, 6-1, 7-5 in a match littered with unforced errors. "My game was definitely not up to speed," Roger commented. "My serve was not working at all. I hope I can come back from this. That's usually what I do after a loss like this." Roger broke twice in a one-sided opening set but Gulbis came back by converting two of five break-point chances in the second, as more and more errors showed in Roger's game. The Latvian broke twice more in the concluding set as Roger unfortunately did not find a reply to the situation and finally had to admit defeat. "He has immense power on both sides and one of the fastest serves in the game," Roger added on Gulbis. "I think he's got a great future."
