Roger out in quarters

06.09.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 2

Roger could not make it past Tomas Berdych in the quarters of the US Open, losing 6-7(1), 4-6, 6-3, 3-6 to the world number 7.

"So many moments, I thought, ‘Man, it’s just not happening for me,'" Roger said afterwards. "It was just a very disappointing match for me."

Berdych absolutely controlled the opening-set tiebreaker and then he broke to begin the second set. Roger fought back in the third set and finally found his rhythm. The critical point came late in the fourth set: Berdych's broke Roger to take a 5-3 lead. At that point, all Berdych had to do was hold serve - and he did.

For the first time since 2003, Roger is not going to participate in the U.S. Open semifinals. Still, he will remain world no. 1 until after the US Open.

Dearest Champion Roger:
So sorry for that QF loss. It is so unfair to expect you to win all the time but it hurts just the same and I stay away to heal. All that matters is that you're in good health, injury free and enjoying life with your beautiful family. Your records are legendary but your accomplishments so far this year have been staggering. Stay well Greatest and awaiting to see soon, we are missing you so much alredy.
Your Forever Loyal fan

Dear Roger,

Never mind a loss, you cannot win forever.

Very tough loss, dearest Roger..
Still sad about it.. It's rather hard being Your fan in this dull environment crowded with dumb fans of that djoković guy...
Nevertheless, I'll always have faith in You, no matter what!
I admire You so much and proudly wear RF cap downtown.
Wish You a good recovery, and can't wait to watch You soon again, my Greatest.
Love from Belgrade.
