Out against Djokovic

08.06.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 2

Roger suffered a 4-6, 5-7, 3-6 loss against Novak Djokovic in the semi-final of the French Open today.

"I was actually feeling particularly well in the second set, and that one hurts the most to lose," Roger said. "In the third, I don't know, I just wasn't able to put a good game together anymore. You're down two sets to nothing against Novak and it's not the same match anymore. He goes for broke and has no fear and that's about it."

Roger had a good start by breaking Djokovic early in the first set but receiving the re-break in return. Djokovic secured the first set with yet another break. In the second, Roger broke Djokovic again for a 3-0 lead but the world no. 1 took 13 of the next 18 games, constantly putting Roger under pressure. In the third set, Djokovic piled up four breaks to eventually seal his victory after 2:05 hours.

Not impressed by Rafa's game in the 3rd set and what's with all these long rallies and rather failing to win the point. Men! This is crazy and hard to watch

What is Nadal doing? He just can't hold serve anymore. This is disgraceful that he let Djoko run with this set. It's now 5-2. Woah! Unbelievable play from Nadal. We are onto set 4

Nadal must win to because this big head Joko does not deserve
to be mentioned in one line with Rod Laver, no way !!

Djoko leads 4-2 here, we will probably see a 4th set. Maybe if Nadal loses a set which he hasn't lost in this tournament, then he'd up his game a little bit.

Nadal is slacking a little bit. How could he let Djoko back into the match when he was leading 2-0? He shouldn't let Djoko get his momentum or mojo back. I know the crowd wants to see tennis, but I am tired of the whole thing. I desperately want Nadal to win. Comeon Nadal!

Now the third set it is 3-2 for Joko.

Boting, you are right, I am tired of him not winning GS, reaching quarters or semis do not cut it for me. Last time he won a GS was AO 2010, that's well over 2 years ago. I can believe Roger will go this long without winning Gs. If he doesn't win Wimby, hmmmm!!!!!!! it might as well be over for him. Just saying....
