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.

I'll second Shaochia: we're all disappointed for you and the USO (which has been a scheduling shambles IMO) without you is no fun at all.
We all want you healthy, enjoying yourself and happy again - you have had an absolutely fabulous 10 months or so and given all your fans such joy and pleasure. No one will ever match you. Perhaps your next short term goal would be that y/e No.1 title: are you going to play Shanghai this year?
Thanks over & over for your wonderful tennis. Love always to you,

Pity about the loss but it can happen. Just read roger's post match interview and he did sound very disappointed. As a long time fan i feel that Roger should have been a little more gracious towards berdych when asked so many questions about his play. As an ambassador and at the pinnacle of tennis it is only fit to give credit where credit's due.
