Out against Benneteau

15.02.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger was shocked by Julien Benneteau in the quarter finals of Rotterdam today, losing to the Frenchman 3-6, 5-7.

Roger did not seem his usual self, battling with ill-timed double faults and a bad rhythm in general. Benneteau secured three service breaks, while dropping just one to clearly lead the match. It was only at 2-4 in the second set that Roger finally scored a break after being able to hold serve. Unfortunately he struggled with his serve again at 5-6 and finally had to admit defeat after too many errors including another double fault.

Next up for Roger are the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships, starting on February 25th.

Well, it was disappointing the way you lost. I know you cant win all the time, but you looked disoriented and appeared like you didn't care. Benneteau is a good player, but I don't think he is that good. I can't bare to watch when you play in a lackidasical manner.
Go home, regroup and try it again and bring your A game.

There's only one You and win or lose, it's always a pleasure to watch you play. It seemed something else was on your mind...perhaps the Oscar Pistorius incident in South Africa..I don't know, but tennis is a sport....life is what's important. Be well & happy !

Dearest Roger:

Sorry about tonight. Rotterdam lost its glitter if you're not playing... But never mind, it happens. Now do take care of yourself, health & mind.
You will always be the only true champion!!

You're meeting Mr Mandela? wow,I hope that you do get that opportunity! and best wishes for your Foundation too.Have a successful and fullfilling trip Roger.:)

just a yellow ball and racket,just a game,
not life or death,nor great scientific fame
yet when metered by magic maestro hand
knowledge joy and beauty sang his wand
just a steely warrior courageous and proud
but mystic glimpses of tender soul-allowed!
