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.

Wat had je verwacht van Murray ? Murray gaat de boeken in als een
one slam winner...

Two sets for Novak. I am EXTREMELY disappointed in Andy. He is complaining to the umpire that the crowd is too loud. That the umpire should control them more or say more to keep them quite. IS HE FORGETTING HOW THE CROWD WERE IN HIS FAVOUR AT WIMBLEDON AND THE OLYMPICS??? He did not mind it there !!!
After Wimbledon I became his fan, now I am disappointed in him for beeing such a bad sport.

Sorry you lost but you were great still did not win break points you must go away and work on that part of your game.
I will not be watching the final as there is no flair to their games like yours.

Final, what final? I do not know of a tennis final! Maybe a baseline slugging match, boxing with tennis balls and racquets! No interest to me. Nice article around by Agassi. He at least believes Roger is one of the all time great athletes. Perhaps just as important, he believes Roger at 31 is at the top of his game! I firmly believe that on another day, he would have beaten Murray. For some reason, his last two games he was having problems find the line and with his service. Back problems maybe?

One set each. Sorry to say, but not a Roger vibe in the stadium.
They both are playing good, but long rallies, and Andy has begun with his mouthering, or what ever you call it, dropping the F-word, etc.
Seriously, even last years Novak/Rafa final was more exciting than this.
No breaks yet.

Dear Roger, I am watching the Novak/Andy final and it is (to be honest) borring.
You are not in it. You should have been. There is a different vibe. Not the same as if you would have been there. I mean borring in the sence of they keep hitting the ball waiting for the other one to make a mistake.
But still congratulations to Novak and Andy for making it to the final. (Well even I would be in the final with their draw!!). Hope Andy wins, so it would not be in vain that you lost to him. Love you.

Roger, congratulations with your performance in Melbourne ! You played exciting tennis throughout the tournament. Andy prooved to be a little bit better in the semis but you have been fighting again like a lion. I noticed that your backhand has improved a lot, almost any unforced errors while the top tennis players focus hard on your backhand. Well done and have a little bit rest before the Davis Cup.
