Out against Murray

25.01.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 2

Yet another scintillating, exciting and very brave game from the racquet of our Roger – unfortunately this time the result could not match his tennis. He has lost to Andy Murray 4-6, 7-6(5), 3-6, 7-6(2), 2-6 in an absorbing and enthralling game of tennis.


This time it did not look as though Murray would be the loser right from the start of the first set which he took comfortably 6-4. Having said that our champ made him fight hard for his victory by taking the 2nd and 4th sets with tiebreaks. After a really hard fought battle with Murray dominating most of the match it was only our Roger’s brilliance that kept him alive – that and an indomitable spirit that refuses to give in when most other players would be swamped. By the 5th set though it seemed our champ had given his all and Murray took only 35 minutes from a 4 hour match to close out the final set 6-2.  From the cheering during the match it seemed at times as though he was playing the match in Basel and not in Melbourne plus Roger was given a standing ovation when he left the court. Murray now faces Djokovic in the final on Sunday.

It may be a good tournament for you by reaching Semis, but we fans want more championships than semis. You are still not at the level where you can satisfy with Semis & Quarters. You still have No.1 game with you. Try to be No.1 again plzzzzzzzz.

I don't blame the age in this AO, Roger played 5 sets against Tsonga, then he was able to stand up until the 4th set with Murray, and played in 48 hours 10 sets (5 + / 5 -).
Look at Murray: he played with Roger 5 sets, and was not able to play beyond the 2nd with Novak despite at medium level of Djokovic.

Roger, thank you for the great two weeks at the AO. I will never forget your two (2) 5 setters - you were awesome. Thanks for the great peformance which only you can provide. I stayed up until 3 am our time to watch your matches and you are the greatest. Walk away from the semi's with a great satisfaction and the standing ovation as you well deserve it. Keep up the good work as you are a true champion. Good luck in your next tournament and I will be watching either on tv or computer.
