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.

Roger, I love your haircut. You look much younger !!!

I am nervous. Draw of RG will be out soon.

ROGER, PLEASE LET THIS BE YOUR ONLY GOAL FOR RG:

MAKE THE GREAT UNCLE TONI EAT HIS FILTHY WORDS !!!
MAKE HIM SEE THAT YOU ARE NOT SOMEONE HE CAN UNDERESTIMATE.

He says, you are not willing to do much more to win?
Wel, here is a 'stupid' question? When will Rafa marry Ciska so he too will have a famliy and make other priorities???
Did Roger not have a wife and kids at Rafa's age soon?

Years are passing through, you are still the shining star. That's the point if you can overcome Nadal at Roland Garros, all critiques are going to be finished permanently.
Your hair cut looks AWESOME and Youngster.

Dear Roger,
Firstly, if you want to play for finals, you should play your magical tennis with an amazing game plan. Secondly, this is a good saying: No Pain No Gain. Thirdly, I still believe in you. You will win the trophy in Roland Garros. God Bless you and your family.

Nadal's coach Uncle Toni told a Spain radio station that Roger is not a favorite to win the French Open. Toni said Roger is not willing to sacrifice as much nowadays to win the title. Toni's top six favorites are Nadal, Djokovic and Ferrer, del Potro, Berdych and Dimitrov. Many fans would like to see Roger, Annacone and Luthi fired up to put in the necessary effort, sacrifice and focus to win the title -- and make Toni eat his words.

All the best for Roland Garros Roger.
Sounds like you are trying to make some plans to use when playing Rafa, and this is all good. It does take some time to enforce those tactics, but hey it is a start.
UP AND AT 'EM.
ALWAYS
