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.

Roger if you read your comments, then let me tell you that you've managed to put aside your emotions whether you lost or won matches. With murray I don't know what happen but it seemed you let your emotions take over and you let yourself down and your fans, but we still love you from the bottom of our hearts.

It's shameful to see that one dimensional power tennis tennis gaining upper hand over conventional traditional tennis which is dangerous for the future of tennis.Please win over the baseline hitters and show that tennis is more than just base line hitting.Go to the net more often and finish off the rally it is not an advice it is my request please please save tennis

Dear Roger
I am so proud of the way you fought and played against a considerably younger opponent, too bad that you did not have your serve that day but theses things happen. I have been a fan of yours for ten years and just love to watch you play. I am looking forward too seeing you at Indian Wells as I will be there and also I will be on centre court at Wimbledon to see you play. I know you can win another major.

2 More big ones will make it a nice round number of 20 to beat you and will remain unachievable for anyone for the longest period of time. I am sure you have it in you to win 2 more and may I remind you of your bet with TW.
Wish you the best of luck for the remainder of the year and hope you will be at AO next year.

Too bad for the loss, but the loss came due to poor serves which is a good thing. In the 5th I saw a new Roger which I have never seen, i.e. someone was tired and did'nt put everything on the line.
If you are do not really care about winning, you really should retire the pain your fans have to endure with your loses is just too much to bear, I cannot even imagine how painful it must be for you.
If you want to WIN you MUST WANT a whole lot more than the other guy.
Good luck for the future.

cont
goes to bed in 4am.Your body STARTS TO FEEL IT. My job was like that after evening/night shifts your body is so upset and it was not a physical job at all [ referring to their own job ,not Rogers]ONE THING IS A NIGHT SLEEPING AND THE OTHER IS DAY SLEEPING.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I fully agree--perhaps those who do the scheduling may like to do exactly what Roger did,play night tennis for 5 evenings, then interviews

I do not know who wrote the following comment but it was sent to me[PM] by one of Rogers Europoean fans.
Hello Margaret
Thank you for your post
In the past I have also worked shift work thus agree with what you say--thought that you would appreciate the following which I found amongst the many words written post Roger's SF match. Here it is unedited

Those night session matches are awful for the body ESPECIALLY in Feds case. He played five tough matches in row in those cold nights
