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.

Ciao Roma! Bienvenue Paris! Another championship, another provocation for you! Every minute spent on the tennis court gives me the power to understand the sport in all its depth. I do not know how you feel, but I think you can become a competitor in the world could actually understand what tennis or sports in general. I think that in the future mankind will be able to understand what is in the mind of a quality sports not in any way betray the pure manifestation of the human body.

Good luck for your draw-selection on friday. I think that you will not play Rafael Nadal or David Ferrer before semi-finals. Also, I still believe in you. You will play for finals and in the end get trophy.
