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.

I agree with you --lets hope next time that Stan is in a tight battle he will win --3rd time lucky!
He is a very good player--we enjoyed watching him play DC here in Australia at end of 2011.
The format of DC is crazy at the best of times--Many aspects of it needs reviewing IMO.

Darlin. Roger,
Doesn't matter about losing to Murray, just doesn't matter who might win you on a particular day!
You are our unique and precious Roger, who will never be matched in so many ways, not just in tennis!

It's magical to watch you play, it's magical to see your smile, it's magical to feel your warmth of heart💗

Magical. Maestro!! Thank you for being you!

I wait in anticipation for Rotterdam 😊

Roger well played, but I am sure you dont expect to lose to Murray and Djokovic like this.
You need a 3 prong strategy against the top 3

1. Ensure to keep 1st serve % >65 ( cut down the speed to improve percentage if necessary)

2. Be aggressive with second serve return- no chip return on 2nd serve- just kill them. You started to do this in AO 13 but not in the SF

3. Come to the net and not get involved in baseline rallies. Keep the points short like in Wimby Final and conserve energy.
