Out against Murray

13.10.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger was defeated 4-6, 4-6 by Andy Murray in the semis of the Shanghai Masters today.

Roger had trouble with his serve on numerous occasions today, committing three successive double faults in the middle of the opening set. He did manage a re-break to make up for the loss of his opening serve to level at 1-1, but Murray secured another break to take a 3-2 lead which proved enough to capture the first set. The second set started with a seemingly interminable opening game (18 minutes). Murray scored the first break - after a 40-0 lead on Roger's serve - to again take a 3-2 lead and finally the match.

Murray and Djokovic will play each other in tomorrow's final.

Hi Roger I was thinking more about your semi with Andy. For sure he is out to get you with aggressive tennis to put you under pressure. This is a tactic from Lendl perhaps. And this may have affected your serve against him. Perhaps you have to turn the tables and attack him more as you did very successfully at the O2 event last November where your opponents were stunned!

best wishes

Hi Roger so sorry you lost but why did you change your serve it was slower and Andy was able to capitalise on it.
Maybe next time hope you stay at number one keep going.
love Helen xxx you are still my number one.

You have played amazing tennis this year and set more records for the history books. No one will ever match your legacy! Go home, enjoy your family, and prepare to have a great time in Basel!
