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.

Dear Roger

Just watched the Australian Open Final - what a boring match! I do hope we are not going to be stuck watching Murray and Djokovic for the next few years. I missed the genius and beauty of your game today. I can't wait to see you play again. Luckily I have bought some DVDs of Wimbledon 2012 and 2009 to keep me going. What joy you give us in contrast to the grinding play of the other top players.

Thank you so much. Your many fans love you.

Dear Roger - you clearly wore out Murray! He didn't serve, move, attack nearly as well against Djokovic as he did against you as he looked fatigued! Great work for "an old" player! You're still hanging in there with the youngsters, nothing to worry about. Novak and Andy had much easier draws than you. So impressed with your movement and shot making this tournament! ALLEZ!

Fed Fan Ap, Nice letter. So true.

I cannot believe a comment was made about Roger's sportmanship. Why are they always attacking Roger? You don't get those awards 8 or 9 times for nothing. Give him a break. He lost his temper once. What about Andy swearing after each point, Rafa giving the opponent deadly looks and his delaying, Novak swearing in his own language. Why attack Roger for losing his temper just once in so many years. It is never good what he does, they always attack him. He is huma

I hope you feel better.
If you want to fight for the title you have a lot to do, because Novak and Andy are great physically prepared. Especially Novak, who seems to be able to play tennis all day.
Best of luck, Roger.
