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.

there have been many the ups and downs and strange matches that have happened in madrid. roger and djokovic losing early to younger players, stan to the final and dimipova arriving in romance. with all of this, if serena and nadal win today it will look like nothing much changed. so it's on to rome to see what happens there. wishing much better for roger. HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO MIRKA AND ALL FEDERER FANS!!!

**AI Sampras did not quit after Roger defeated him at Wimbledon. He won the US Open the following year (I think) - anyway, he did win it.
