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.

No importa tu derrota. Estoy tan feliz de haberte conocido personalmente, verte jugar, verte entrenar, tener tu autógrafo, haber hablado contigo, que toda esa felicidad que me diste hizo realidad mi sueño. Fuiste, eres y serás el más grande de todos los tiempos. Campeón.

Sorry about your defeat. Was it just not your day? You were the better player by far but somehow the match slipped away from you; you alsmost seemed too relaxed in the break of after the first set. It was like you were playing a training match instead of a real match in a tournament! Who am I to judge, it is just an observation. Still, when you play your best, you are the best ever!!! Good luck in the next tournament.

Roger, you beat yourself before beat anyone. Your team should understand this point. Honestly, losing a game is not a big deal. The real deal is to face your self.

Thanks to share

Roger don't give up!!! I know monovirus from 2008 took away all your muscle that you cannot hit strokes and serve with same speed and power before you got sick but don't give up! keep thinking about how to beat Nadal and other players easily. don't make errors and keep attacking nadal's backhand and other players as well until you got a chance. improve your backhand strokes because short backhand and slice gave away too many chances to your opponent to attack you!

I find it strange as well. It is like Stan coming out of Rogers shadow! I reckon he has found and picked up Roger's magic wand. That would explain things and I joke of course! I am so pleased for Stan is that he is finally getting into some finals. It would be wonderful all the way round if he stops Nadal tomorrow. The less points Nadal gets the better for Roger!
