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.

Roger: Of the next five tournaments you play you can get points in 4. Rome, RG, Halle and Canada. If you get the most points available there (And do not do horrible in Wimbledon, an impossibility) you will seal your place in London which is not a tournament if you dont go. Please know that is just as question of will and focus, your tennis and your shape are better than ever, just let your head get to it and play with ease, enjoy the game you feel love for and show them who is the champ.

Sorry you lost! The stats indicate that you were better than Kei in EVERY category, including total # points won, EXCEPT the breaks. It was a close match. Obviously, a little rusty right now. ... Your little girls sure are pretty & cute!
