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.

Its funny when some people feel Roger going out of top 4 as a calamity. It's a situation we need to get used to and then Roger bouncing back later to the top (if not No1). People said Roger was on decline when he lost the French and Wimbledon in 2008, he won USO 2008, then again lost in AO 2009, then won FO, Wimby and then AO 2010. Then came FO, Wimby QF hits and the media created havoc when he fell outside top 2 saying he can't face big hitters anymore. He got back to No2 quickly and later No1.

Good idea about the doubles Rogi, twice the amount of practise on grass, plenty of fast net play and I am sure you will enjoy yourself. I am sure that will be more enjoyable and therefore profitable than hours on a practise court. Of course we are not complaining, we get to play doubles as well, double the amount of Rogi to cheer on and hopefully twice the amount of your smiles and waves. I am easy to please Roger, just smile and I am happy! Good luck for the week!

Good that you're playing doubles Champ. That means more practice on grass. Get sharp with your net play...

Roger plz complete the formular to beat nadal. my think
on yourserve-->1.serve wide 2. attack 3. attack 4. if he neutralize and you are not in good position to attack, then send deep fastball to nadal's backhand, it will give you short moon balls 5. attack or if you cannot, send deep moonball 6 if he attack back, return deep moon balls 7 if he return short, attack 8 repeat without making unforced errors.

on nadal's serve-->1.return with your backhand deep moonball 2.moonball 3.attack 4 repea

Wow, is that really true? It's not like Roger to play doubles, hope he gets both titles ! This will give him more matches to play and therefore more preparation for Wimbledon, pretty cool!
