Out against Berdych

01.03.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Sorry to say that Roger lost in the semi finals of the Dubai Open to Tomas Berdych. In the first set he was strong and positive winning 6-3, then followed a score line  of 6-7(8), 4-6 to see the match finish in favour of Berdych. The tiebreaker in the second set was back & forth with Berdych coming out the eventual winner – at one point our Champ was 5-4 in the tiebreak but could not convert this in to a set win. Berdych then upped his game and went on to win the 3rd set 6-4 helped by some untypical Roger errors. "Pity to lose that one, but Tomas did well to hang in there," Roger said. "Obviously I leave this match with a lot of regrets. "You do all the right things for so long, and then at the end you've got to explain why you didn't hit two shots decent," he said. "So it's disappointing."

Dear Roger,

it was so disappointing for you and for us, but learn from the defeat and change your mind, go ahead! you are always my No1. Good luck for the next tournament.

Hey Champ, there's nothing to prove for you other than strengthening your legacy. The only thing you can focus maybe is to figure out a winning strategy against your main rival (of course, it's difficult as long as he dopes and reaches for every ball). But on faster courts it's obvious that you can get him. You showed a good mental attitude against him at IW last year. Keep that same attitude every time. His victory against Ferrer shows that he was waiting for clay season with an injury excuse.

I too was disappointed that you lost your match with Tomas but agree Tomas played well . Sounds strange but you seem to bring out the best tennis in him and it was a good match. I read some where that you will not be playing again until the Madrid open although your schedule still shows you are playing in the Indian Wells tournament. It will be good for you to have a break after your busy time with the Foundation.

I AGREE ROGER STILL HAS IT. HE IS THE BEST.

MY WIFE MADE A WORRYING COMMENT - SHE SAID when Rog has a chance and doesn't take it, he starts going downhill in the match.

I noticed that after many years of watching Rog - I never told her - now as an outside, unbiased observer, she hit the nail on the head.

I still KNOW that ROG WILL WIN AT LEAST 3 MORE GRAND SLAMS INCL. WIMBLEDON AND FRENCH AND PLAY TILL THE 2016 BRAZIL OLYMPICS.

AS USUAL, HE NEEDS OUR SUPPORT MOST NOW SINCE HE SOUNDS D

Hope you rest well and are ready for Indian Wells. C'mon Roger, you can win that tournament. Well, at least, I hope you do. :)

Dear Rogerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr,

I didn't read the above comments regarding your loss, but please try to avoid all the reasons for not winning the semi final against Berdych. Berdych has beaten you several times!!! So, do you think it would be as easy as you thought? You really need to play solid and without 1% errors in crucial moments. Don't be disappointed, just be appointed to do that next time!!! Good Luck!!! We are with you, all the way, think of regaining your number one spot.

Dear Rogerrrrrrrrrrrrr,

Your performance is great considering your age and determination. However, you need more luck??? or may be you need to stay solid in crucial moments, which unfortunately was the case with Berdych instead of you. Take care, learn from bitter experiences. Good Luck, We Love You !!!

Not a good idea to post your email address on a public forum. Search engines pick up on them and you lay yourself open to spam.

Roger knows already by all the replies here we love him.
