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.

AJ81,
You are so idiot. Roger is the tennis. Djokovics's, Nadal's tennis is impossible to love.
I cannot love them as a human being. Djokovics's behavior on court, out court is so irritating and disgusting. And Nadal's phobias?
I want to watch tennis while Roger play. So AJ81, get lost.

It was the first time I saw you live in Rome this year. Even if it was not one of your best performance I want only say to you : "will nature conserve you as soon as possible 'couse you are tennis and the others are practice".
Good luck for Paris.
