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.

Wow! Roger is currently 10th in YTD ranking. Is he even going to make it to London as one of the top 8? Such a sad and disappointing year with no title yet for our Champion. Hope he can recover:

WALESFEDERATOR You .may well think that but please try to keep these thoughts to yourself. It serves no purpose stating them. Quite the reverse.

Nadal is out seven months, comes back and makes seven finals. Roger is out seven weeks and loses in second match. The man never gives up. Roger sucks.

Edit - YUKIMI Rafa is a remarkable extremely gifted player. Had Roger or Novak not been knocked out in the early rounds then who knows. Maybe Rafa would;t have won today. He has now beaten Stan nine times and had not dropped a set to him.

I don't suppose I will change your mind ..... and at the end of the day I don't care if I don't.

No more please.
