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.

Hey Champ, stay healthy, practice hard and have a good tournament at Halle.

It would probably be a good practice for Wimbledon if Roger faces Hass , Gulbis and Gasquet.

Players said they have respect for you but went right at you (Murray, Tsonga). At 32 Serena still dominates the games. You have the talent, but lost your mental edge. Respect means nothing, until you start winning slams again. Good luck and stay tough and smart.

As the Spanish docters said a while ago that Nadal will have to quite tennis
if he continues playing in the way he is used to.

Grass season is Nadal's fake-injury-time-out and on-court-coaching season. All The fellow players on tour, beware!!! Stay focused mentally on such occasions...

Why? Has he got cold feet knowing Roger will be there on grass?

Roger is the best tennis player ever and like all tennis players and athletes they can't stay on top forever. That doesn't mean they should be disrespected. I have to laugh when they say Roger was stunned by a loss. Really? I doubt it. He is still playing great and I'm sure many other players wished they were half as good as he is. No matter what negativity is written about him, his bank account is far from negative. So he can just keep smiling.
