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.

rog is goat. no doubt about it. monumental achievements to get 35 consecutive GS qf's and in 2012 to win 7th wimby, get back to #1 and pass pete to be the only male player to reach 300+ wks. but there is no amount of fitness training that will turn a 31yo with a bad back into a 25 yo in his prime. it's superhuman to be #2 and compete with these 25, 25, and 26 yo guys. in order to beat them regularly and win lots of GS he would have to do steroids. so fans, enjoy. but don't expect 31 to be 25.

Sorry i was meant to say u will WIN Wimbledon this year. Therefore winning 8 titles and getting the all time open era record. Also it would be great if u won the US open. U have got a better chance there than the Oz open b'cos its slightly more faster court. 2013 will be ur year,please stay healthy and focused and u shall prevail.GOD made u a champion for a reason and u r still playing at a high level.Just believe and the rest will follow!!A true champ is how u react when u fall

Hi...even though a SF defeat. It was still an exellent tourny considering u hav 252 GS match wins plus 35 consec QF streak in GS. Hopefully u will at Wimbledon and break the tied record aswell the US Open by winning 6 there. Nearly everytime u play u r breaking records which is unbelievable!!! May GOAT Reign supreme and show these classless tennis players ie Murray and Djokovic how to be a proper and true champion of all time.Good luck 4 the rest of the season.

Well played in the tournament Roger. Murray is hard to beat cause his serve, return strokes and few unforced errors. Also named boring tennis as the final went.
