Out against Nadal

15.03.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

The clash of the titans at Indian Wells turned out to be a non event – unfortunately with our Roger on the losing side against Rafa Nadal 4-6, 2-6. Our Champ – always the gentleman – refused to blame the problem with his back saying: "I'm happy to be out there and able to compete, but it's obviously a small issue," he said. "That doesn't work against guys like Rafa". He added, "you could see at least I could serve full basically, and that always gives you a direction". He also said that he didn't want to talk about his back too much "because I don't like to undermine his performance, either". Rafa was just as magnanimous in victory saying "if I think that I am better than him because I beat him 19 against 10, I will be very stupid and very arrogant," he said. "This is not the case."

Roger had a miserable match against his old foe with only a slight glimmer of hope in the second set to get to 2-3 from 0-3 but Nadal took the remaining games in the set to win the match. It has to be said to Roger’s immense credit that he continued to play when obviously hampered by injury. There are a lot of players who would have retired rather than battling on never mind fashioning a break so early in the second set.

Next up will be the Mutua Madrid Open in May.

Hola Roger!!!!
Lei que el director del torneo de Monte Carlo, dijo que "puedes dar la sorpresa de ultima hora y jugar ahí".. Si lo estas considerando, por favor acepta. Los torneos no son lo mismo sin ti. Viste que vacíos lucían los estadios en Miami???
ESPERAR HASTA MAYO PARA VERTE, ES HORRIBLE!!! POR FAVOR ACEPTA JUGAR EN MONTE CARLO, HAZNOS FELICES A LOS MILLONES DE FANATICOS QUE TE QUEREMOS EN TODO EL MUNDO.

Happy Birthday Mirka! I am sure Roger and the twins will give you a good one.
I am looking forward to the results of a long break and plenty of training. Last time you did this Roger, the results were quite spectacular.
Whatever happens Roger, you are the one everyone wants to watch, you are so wonderful to watch. You are always No.1. to me, win or lose, you are magic. I hope the back is well recovered now.

wishing Mirka a very Happy Birthday and hope you are all having a great family holiday. Hi Roger I do hope your back is now much better. I wonder if you should consider playing in Monte Carlo? Watch out for Andy Murray claiming more points!

with best wishes
