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 that was awesome...when I saw you win the fourth set I knew it didn't matter whether you won the match or not! You played amazing, tough, brilliant tennis against a very worthy opponent and it was a thrill to see. Congratulations on a great tournament and rest up for the 'easy' 3-set tournaments to come. Thanks once again for all the joy you give us!!!

You played such a great match and I am so proud of you never hanging your head down or ever giving up your fans know you gave it everything you could. It was a tough tournament as it seemed you sure had many of the more seasoned opponents as where Murray played Chardy who maybe one day will be a great player but certainly not yet. You had a really hard draw. Take care and rest and know all your fans love you.

No problem Roger it happens. You were obviously below par against Murray which is why you lost. You are human and have achieved it all champ. I guess you gave the kid a chance to win. take care Roger and all the best.

All my love and kisses,
Asad

the other players concern about their wining so much because they're taking the very first step to do something that's you've already done long time ago .. we love you Roger no matter what because what you've gave us is to much to have the enough time to talk about .. miss yo already and waiting you in Rotterdam

you're talent level is so much higher than wining or losing .. we don't care if you win or lose because you've built you legacy and you still making it .. never mind roger and never mind federista we should be the last fans in the world who cares about roger's wins because we're already have what's make us live on for maybe 10000000000000 years without end .. enjoy your tennis Roger and do your best to win not to calculate anything but because you pleased yourself with wining and pleased us too ,

you had to "fuking stop." I can't believe if you got to the final, then you would have "fuking stopped" Djokovic!
