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.

I was awake at 3.00 AM until 6.00 (becouse I had to work) that day- Just little later I saw the match result. (5th Set 2-6) .... I did not what happened there. But maybe we just think you are a machine. In many aspects yes you are. We are all Perfect Machines. We do all we want with our body... And you... You have done so many things, That really makes us feel proud about you-

Yes I would love to see you win Murray and also lift the Trophy in Melbourn. But I hope you win it another time.

Sure, we all wanted you to win another AO but you should be proud of reaching SF. You had a really though draw and a couple of really hard matches against Jo and Murray. Have a well deserved rest, take care and best of luck for the rest of the season!

Dear Roger,
It was an amazing match! Although you didn't beat Murry this time, the two matches against Murry and Tsonga were still so exciting and powerful that they showed you are definitely the best of the best players!
And... You have achieved more records for us to be so proud of your fan!
I hope you have a good break for a few days and start your quest for the next title!! Good luck!

Very Disappoint in the last 5set. What did you eat before the match or during a match? I think that you seems to be lost control due to run out of stamina. As getting age, everyman lose the stamina or recovery ability. So you take special food like JINSENG, which is the best food in my experience. Bear in mind that, keeping your energy is more important that your practices.

1-Hello my beautiful wonderful love, how are you? Congratulations on a great tournament. Having a GS as your first event of the season and reaching semis right off the bat in such top shape was amazing and pretty much the dream of any tennis player. You are in incredible shape Roger you went through a mine field playing beautifully and efficiently. All of this will make you stronger and even more resourceful. You've taken a good snapshot to navigate through.
