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.

Rome draw is out. Finally you get a decent draw. I guess the ATP officials realize that the fans are aware of they have been doing. So they have to do something right for a change. But I am still concerned about the FO draw. Let us wait and see.
I am proud of you Maestro. Please do not be mad at yourself. I am glad that you are back.
I am disappointed at the Spanish judge who ordered all blood samples be distroyed. Really what type of justice is there in the sportsworld. Sad.

The draw is not important Federer will not suceed because he did not play for
2 months that will give a lot of problems on clay. Lack of rhyth. To less matches.
