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.

Strange that Fed started leaving tournaments early and Stan started going till the end. Tomorrow would be his second Final in two weeks. Playing best tennis of his life :) I wish he beats Nadal tomorrow and soon enters into top 10 list.

I've a question about Fed's performance in 2013.

He has not in top eight for Race to London yet. Will he be able to make it?
