Roger loses Halle final

17.06.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 3

Roger lost today's final in Halle against Tommy Haas 6-7(5), 4-6.

"I'm very impressed with how he played today," Roger said. "Tommy deserved to win."

Roger started perfectly well, securing an early break and even heading for a double-break. But then suddenly things changed and our champ had to fight off first set-points at 4-5. In the tie-breaker, Roger fell behind again and Haas eventually took it with a two-point lead after 50 minutes of play.
In the second set Roger's serve was broken at 4-4, giving Haas the possibility to serve out the match - which he then did.

Roger only previous final loss in Halle was in 2010, when he lost to Lleyton Hewitt.

Dear *1fed1 06/21/2012 | 12:14 AM* and EVERYONE ELSE,

*1FED1* ATTACKS *vibhuism*, IN HIS POST DATED ABOVE, FOR POSTING, IN 1FED1's OWN WORDS, "USELESS WEBSITES".

TO BE FAIR,BEFORE 1FED1 MADE THIS POST, I HAD LOOKED AT *vibhuism*'S POSTED WEBSITE AND I SAW ROGER STROLLING HAPPILY W/MIRKA.

THAT'S A FACT SO I GOTTA SPEAK UP FOR *vibhuism* BECAUSE NO ONE ELSE HAS DEFENDED *vibhuism*.

NOW I NOTE SOMETHING: 1FED1 OTHERWISE & USUALLY MAKES INTELLIGENT & INTERESTING COMMENTS.

john werthiem made his comments on a tennis channel interview with bill macatee. he said "everybody is thinking novak he's #1. i will zig where everybody else will zag. i think roger will win. it's his best chance. he's playing pretty well lately. i reminds me of pete sampras and his last USO win." that may not be exact word for word, but zig, zag, and sampras stood out. the only reason i remember is because it surprised me when he said it. let's hope from john's lips to God's ears.

Dear Roger's Website Managers,

Where's the green background colour?!

PS. Course weather could play part, even with that roof. I remember when Murray played Wawrinka under the roof he said how it definately changed the way the ball/court played - made things slower I seem to remember - we don't want that; the courts have been slowed down enough. Hope we fans are not putting too much pressure on our champ with our expectations(even if press feel he's out), I want him to feel relaxed and enjoy himself. Love and luck to him always, xxxx

*nochweiterroger* I found it on sportsillustrated.cnn.com/tennis under 'Tennis news, results,stats' following the 'Can Rafael Nadal claim a third channel slam?' which was how he saw the chances of different tennis stars(male/female) at Wimbledon. There may be another but I couldn't find it. I agreed with him on Djoko - he's lost confidence; not as strong as last year. Whatever happens I hope weather improves, crap at the moment (cold and wet - typical Brit weather!).

Where would Wertheim's comment be? I couldn't find it on the web.
