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.

Yes, that will give him extra motivating.
But history tells us RF usually plays good against local hero's.

Tsonga is playing in front of his country though .....
05/24/2013 | 12:35 PM
Yes! Great news, Tsonga is not in the best form right now and simon is though but beatable. Benneteau on clay is less dangerous. I am very very pleased.

Must give RF a boost, lets go king!

Yes I noticed that and remember Wimbledon when he obliterated Roger in the end.

Tsonga in the quarters worries me...?

But now it is up to Roger. He got a great 'gift'. No Rafa till final, so he should do anything (of course legal) to get to the final.

But we the fans will have to take it one mach at the time.

Ps: Who did the draw for the men? Maria?

MY GOD and MY GOD! THANK U JESUS for such a wonderful DRAW!!!!!!!

GOD surely intervenes for His! Amen.

NOW practice HARD Maestro! GOD has surely opened a door for U and Us. He wants to give Us a huge smile cum- Sunday 09.06.2013.
