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.

Hi Roger! Sorry that you lost but only for a very selfish reason and that is I won't see your beautiful tennis for another week!!! I thought you were a little off today although I did not get to watch the third set 'cause of work... I just wish you a productive time 'till Rome... love you always!

Kei has been improving his game.
Sorry you lost, I was kinda worried seeing you are playing him so early in your come back after the rest. Anyways so sorry u lost, tennis is not the same without yr presence. It felt like you were not there in the 1st set, woke up 2nd set, then went away again. Get fired up again, love to see you win Rome!!

It is always sad to see you losing. but let´s look forward the next tournament. I hope you can feel comfortable on court and do the best. You are the G.O.A.T and all your fans know it... and of course we will be cheering for you ever. I was happy to see you playing because we missed you for a long time and tennis is not the same without you. All the best in Rome!!!! Regards from Peru.

Roger, maybe Brads Passing just had you a little bit off but know that he is watching from above and rooting from you, him, if anyone knows that you represent real tennis. Maybe it is time to shoock the world once again and win a tournament in which you hardly had good results. Please play your heart out, you know how to take advantage of caly with your bag of tricks, make adjustments and be agressive, play with a lot of acceleration all your balls and practice the high backhand, U Are the Best

Its painful to watch, with downs more than upsmduring the match. Wish you the best in Rome with another opportunity.
