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.

Once for all fellow fans, you will notice a photo Of Roger with Rafa holding their respective trophies. NB They are pals.

Just because certain people here "rip Rafa to shreds" doesn't make Roger look any better. There is plenty of space for the talents of both players.

Please no more offensive remarks all round, including one another here. It's pathetic.

Roger had a good tournament with 5 clay court matches under his belt. He just needed the match practice and will reach top form at the right moment at the French open and Wimbledon. Keep supporting this amazing tennis player so he hopefully plays for many years to come. Good luck at the French champ....

Rafa is the hunted at this years RG, someone will take him out. Just one more loss at RG will put him and his fans into depression.

If anyone is going to the French Open, please buy or make a protection charm or pendant for Roger. Nadal Uncle is not nice. Please make a protection charm so that Roger can put it on his tennis bag so that he can take it on the court.
