Out against Tsonga

04.06.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Unfortunately Roger lost his quarter final match against Jo Wilfreid Tsonga today 7-5, 6-3, 6-3. Our champ could only bring 58% of points on his first serve which contained no aces. Combined with 34 unforced errors there was only one way this match was going.

“This is obviously a crushing loss," Roger said following a quick shirt change. "I struggled a little bit everywhere. Personally, I'm pretty sad about the match and the way I played. Jo-Willy played great today. He was better than me in all areas . He returned better than I did, served better than I did. I struggled to find my rhythm. I'm just disappointed I couldn't put in a better match. Missing smashes goes hand in hand with missing so many other things," said our champ, who was broken six times during the contest. "Should have never gotten broken (after being up) 4-2 (in the first set). In hindsight now that's obviously a huge game for me, and things didn't go well from then on for me today."

Roger’s next contest is at the Gerry Weber Open in Halle (Germany), starting on the 10th June.

Media does it all the time. They did it after he won USO 2010. They just want the buzz and discussions to continue.. Outside clay, he's miles below Roger. Can he get to 302 weeks at No1? How about 23 straight GS semis? 5 year-end No1? There are some clowns like some Gerber in ESPN who licks Nadal's a** all the time and puts down Roger. But the response Roger gets anywhere in the world tells who the real Greatest Ever is... With his and his uncle's cheating tactics, they can never win that title.

Dear Champ! I have been sick all day since Nadal won his 8th Roland Garros and the media is proclaiming him the greatest of all times. Really? I definitely think they are wrong. He defeated Novak in semi-finals because he was lucky and unfortunately Novak made some mistakes at the wrong time of the match. I agree with some of your fans that posted comments here, so glad that grass surface time is here. I wish you all the best in Halle and lets go get Wimbledon again.

The media is now crowning Nadal and Novak his recent nemesis was just quoted that he is the best player ever to have played the game. Really? If you minus all clay tourney winnings, what's left . . . seriously, the best?

Roger you can dominate Nadal if you are physically over 85 percent with not-so-good tactic but I gotta tell you gotta use your brain now to beat Nadal as your physical health is below of 70 percent, please absorb nadal's strenth of moonballing tactic with your attacking talent, it seems very effective. when you need to defend, you gatta learn how to send effective moonball from nadal. I think Nadal is the best in moonball technique that you can also learn from. He neutralize everyshot by his moo

thank goodness it"s grass season. whether roger wins or not i can finally see another surface. i feel like i've been smothered by clay and nadal. like i'm in quicksand yelling "HELP". kudos to him for history and i know his fans are happy. that leaves RF, AM, ND, DF, fans and anybody else who has a fav player unenthused. if he wins on grass so be it. welcome halle and queens where there will be 2 people winning not named nadal. JUST GET ME AWAY FROM THE CLAY!!!!

I agree Carole. I find certain people's attitude and language here so offensive.
06/09/2013 | 11:24 PM
Yeah Roger respects Rafa and he also respects Roger

Good Luck in at Halle, Roger!

I can not get over how Roger's fans can knock other players down on his fan page. Roger would not like this, at all, trust me.

Have a nice day,
