Roger loses Rome final

19.05.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 2

Roger lost the final in Rome against Rafael Nadal 1-6, 3-6 in only 68 minutes and therefore our champ is still not able to add the Rome title to his long list of trophies. 

The stats of the game tell two different stories – yes they tell you that Rafa Nadal won 6-1, 6-3 but they also say that Roger had 32 unforced errors to Rafa’s 8 during a match that lasted 1 hour 8 minutes. Another telling stat was that our Roger only won 55% of his first serves – down from 73% in his match against Simone. There was a glimmer of hope in the second set when Roger won 2 games in row to go from 1-5 to 3-5 with some brilliant shot making. Unfortunately in the last game our champ had two unforced errors and at 0-40 Nadal sent down a good serve to clinch the Championship. As ever Roger was gracious at the end complementing Rafa on the way he played. 

Next up are the French Open, starting next Sunday.

Come on now Roger it is only you yourself that can lose.you have the game to win every match so go for it and dont beat yourself up about it.
It is very important that you win the break points as many as you can and not so many unforced errors. Then the matches will be all your.
Good luck love you alway your the number one Helen xxxxxx

Dear Idol,
Does not it seem like all set up & you are destined to lift one more RG title? Who else than you knows better how sweet a RG win can be... So please please pound on it & show them even with less physicality you are still better tennis player than them all. Best of luck.......
