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.

I read 4 pages of your comments - I love Roger like my bro.

Consider this - Roger stays out nearly 2 months, is healthy and practises, but comes back like this ! - RN stays out 7 months, supposedly with SERIOUS injury - but plays into 7 finals and wins 6 of them!

The guy's on drugs and he was using the 7 months to clean his system - any other explanation is bullshit!

Just have patience and support Roger and hope for the best - it's gonna be hard with this other guy on steroids and drugs!

BEFORE STAN PLAYED THE FINAL, I KNEW HE'LD LOSE.
RN SPIT OUT HIS BONES.

STAN SURELY REGRETTED BEATING TSONGA AND BERDYCH TO REACH FINAL CUZ HE WAS EMBARRASSED IN A HOPELESS FINAL FRONT OF THE WHOLE WORLD WITH NO PLACE TO HIDE.

SO YOU ALL HAD BETTER HOPE ROG & DJOKO HANG AROUND - OTHERWISE YOU ALL & I CAN HIT THE OFF BUTTON ON THE TV REMOTE EVERYTIME TENNIS COMES ON - NO KIDDING - DID YOU SEE THE WAY RN DESTROYED EVERYBODY? - IT'S UGLY TENNIS AND UGLY TENNIS 4EVER WITHOUT ROG & DJOKO .

Shame you didn't make it to the final Roger, but no matter, can't win them all! I liked how your service seems even better and you were trying some new ideas. GOOD LUCK IN ROME!!! This one for you, first win in Rome, dear Roger? !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Much love to you and your dear family as always.

Rafa has been winning tournaments where as our champ facing setbacks! it certainly disheartens us however there's always a hope that he's gonna surge once again when time comes!

Nadal has just registered a win in the final of Madrid open by routinely beating the guy on the other side of the net. He has gotten in the final of every tournament he has taken part so far after the long hiatus and won all of them except the monte carlo n the first one he played at. What kind of conspicuous message that he has been sending to the rest of the field, huh?
Whereas, Federer has notched his nth straight loss which dated back to us open last year three days ago. Any say on this?

Good to see you smiling and in a good mood, how it should be. Stay positive, and who knows, maybe this season will be a trophy.
