In control

08.05.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger made a successful start after a break of several weeks, defeating Radek Stepanek 6-3, 6-3 at the Madrid Open.

"I didn't think I played incredible, but that's not what I was expecting myself to do here. But I didn't play bad, either. So I'm very happy with how things went today. Stepanek is a player who can cause a lot of difficulties in the game. He has caused me difficulties in the past. Today that wasn't the case. I thought I was pretty much in control," Roger said after the match.

It didn't take long for Roger to get into the rhythm of his game, cruising past stepanek in 81 minutes. He will now either play Japan's Kei Nishikori (ATP 16) or Viktor Troicki of Serbia (ATP 44).

@ Tawfikao! Please mind your language...You are not worth to be the fan of such a great man, who is a gem so please leave this site because it hurts! It is not necessary that he should win every match...much important is that he is still playing..still fighting and still showing that why he is such a great player!

Wow, you just insulted me and I had to read your comment three times to notice that !!! Maybe we are from different planets.
If you think I am one of those fans who worship him when he wins and destroy him when he loses, you might read some of my comments if you ever have the time to.
Theye are easy to detect. They begin with my name Kemna and end with":

I love you Roger, yesterday, tomorrow and for eternity, no matter a win or a loss.

Veronicav, not all Roger fans are the sa

Lapses of concentration again? I wrote to Roger's management team a while ago to suggest there maybe a nutrient missing in his diet that is responsible.

If they read this then please do look into this..

YOU JUST SAID IT ALL AND EVERYBODY SHOULD READ AND APPLY YOUR COMMENT.

Thank you, from Kemna, a diehard Roger fan, no matter a win or a loss.

I was disappointed when he lost, but when I saw the stats, I thought what the hell??? There was not much difference between them and Roger did not play that bad. But unfortunately some shots of him were amazing and some were just too bad.

I think the big question is why did it seem today that. Roger had no fight or fire in him when yesterday he was. Magnificent !!
Maybe his back is still a problem causing him to be restricted in movement today?
I really don't know!
But Roger is, and always will be the best tennis player in the world!

EVERYBODY - I HAVE WATCHED ROG FOR MANY YEARS - IN THE FINAL SET, HE HAD BREAKPOINTS AGAINST KEI.HE HIT 6 SERVICE RETURNS. 5 WERE OUT !!!

I'VE NEVER NEVER SEEN THAT !!! HE WAS TRYING BUT HE EITHER MISSEDD THE LINES BY 1 mm OR HE WAS OUT BY A MILE SHANKING THE BALL AGAIN AND AGAIN.

WHEN HE MISSED THE 5 SERVICE RETURNS I KNEW HIS CHANCES WERE COLDER THAN FREEZING WATER - I LOVE HIM BUT I FEAR THIS IS NOT THE LAST TIME HE WILL DO THIS , THIS YEAR AND I AM THE ONE WHO PREDICTED 4 MORE GSs FOR R

I agree partly with you. He had fighting spirit. You do not win the second set 6-1 if you don't have the spirit to fight for winning. But where that fighting spirit went in the third set, I don't know.

*KEMNA : Nothing personal, bad luck you had comment close to mine ... so ...

Ah ... and if Roger would have won the tournament, all of you were here and you were no words to praise high.

In your place, when I login in on the site, I would take good manners !!!
Just in case ...
