Roger upset in Madrid

10.05.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 2

Roger suffered a 4-6, 6-1, 2-6 defeat against Kei Nishikori at the Madrid Open.

"Kei played better than I did, so the better guy won today, that's for sure. I'll sit together tonight or tomorrow with the team and discuss what the plan is for the next few days and weeks. So I'm excited for that, because clearly I have no choice but to hit the practice courts," Roger said.

Roger struggled with the conditions in Madrid as breezes and shady patches hit the court. He displayed good tennis during several phases but was not constant enough overall, battling with uncharacteristic errors. After losing the first set, he upped his game to level but lost his serve early in the decider and Nishikori broke for a third time in the match to seal victory.

Stan won the first set and is the man for the moment!would love it if he can a) get in finals and b) beat Nadal and win the title after Roger!
What a strange tournament this has been.

He looked bulky and must have put on a few extra kilos in the past two months and it is clear he was not practicing as hard as one would have expected and he knows that.

Where does he go from here?

REINVENT, REWIND, RE-FOCUS, BURN THE EXTRA KILOS, BRING BACK THE RYTHM, START PAINTING THE LINES AGAIN AND HAVE A LOT OF CONFIDENCE. REMIND HIMSELF THAT 'HE IS ROGER FEDERER'. GO MAN.

The decline started following his success in Winbledon 2012. He was beaten by Murray on the same surface a few weeks later. The surface was not good but he played long especially the long match against Del Potro. He played bad in FO against Nole and so so in USO.

All components of his game is showing signs of rust- the first and second serves, the returns, the movements and accuracy.

Boting. You don't learn do you! Make up your mind whether you support Roger or not and act accordingly! If indeed you are a fan, then please keep your negative thoughts to yourself.
