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, I was sad that you lost the match (you did amazing variations the whole time) and I was worried thinking about what you were going to do next but I´m so happy that you won't be leaving us for a few years :) This break has been extremely long for us because tennis wasn't the same without you, It's true... We missed seeing that fighting Roger on court, giving us all he has..
Anyway I'm possitive that everything will get better and please don't forget we will always support you.. ;)

Hi Roger,
I am extremely sorry that you had to miss a good run in Madrid. You cannot win them all. Look forward to see you in action in Rome and see you in the best shape at Roland Garros. The new generation of tennis players look awesome. Saw Dimitrov in action again Nole and he was absolutely awesome!!! Good luck for the rest of the clay season.
