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.

What an amazing match, Rog. Your 'indomitable spirit' & engaging heart were on complete display along with some fine tennis, of course. Sorry the result didn't go your way this time. Andy served better than ever.

You had such a tough draw & came through so well. Wish we'd see you in the final, because like one of your other fans said, a final without you is only half interesting, even less than that in my book!

We look forward to seeing you in Rotterdam next month!
Rest up ~ Cheers!

Lets go roger. You are the best you don't need to prove anything to anyone. Just keep playing for the love of the sport and it will only be good. The last week was awesome for everything you did for your fans. Though the end result wasn't the best you tried your best and that's all we can ask from you. Good luck in all your future tournaments and I hope to see you again at the French open. Where hopefully the two weeks end with you holding the trophy.

Before I get started...,
I love you, man. We truly appreciate the Michael Jordan like effort you give out there every single match.
All your fans in Latin America stayed up and Australagged during this AO. I've done it since 2004.
You were brilliant in the big points this year.
Time to defend the championships you achieved last year.
REst well, and kick ass.
31 is still a baby. Agassi won Masters titles at 34, you can too.
Best to your family,

"Indomitable spirit": perfect words to describe you and your intensity. Although disapointed because I won't see you in the final (and a final without you it's only half interesting), I enjoyed every one of the matches you played in this very tough draw, showing more than ever (is that possible?) your talent and versatility. Be sure that your fans have only one desire: keep going, maestro!

I woke up for your matches at 3 am and 2:30 am --- you had a difficult draw and to win two (2) 5 setters is really hard for anyone. I enjoyed your tennis however it was too bad that you didnt have more aces on your first serve.
Looking at Andy Murray - he looks more like a boxer than tennis player. My grandson thought he was on something.

Win or lose you are still the most classy player around! At least you dont tear your shirt off --- I do not like that and to me that's not sportsmanship
