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.

Hi Roger,

I am so proud of the way you played in that match. Whilst it was not a perfect performance from your end - particularly on serve, you never gave up and you fought extremely hard to stop a younger and more confident Andy Murray.

You are an inspiration for me. You continue to revel the challenge of standing up with these younger players.

Please take a good break and prepare for the clay court season. I believe you have a chance with a second title at Roland Garros.

What I read was "F- ing stop it" and in reply Murray smirked. Murray later said that he hadn't taken offence and said this is normal amongst players.

I can't believe all the talk about bad temper, or bad language or it's time to lay down his racket and retire. Doesn't anyone know what it took to arrive at the semi finals of a grand slam??? He had a tough draw, yes, but he beat everyone fairly handily except a younger Tsonga and still beat him. The man is that!only a man. He has achieved what very few men achieve in their desired sport. Let's watch Roger go on and win another slam, why because he can and he will. Great match Mr. Federer.

Does he really talked to Murray that words? well, if he does then he's really at the top of his temper....
