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.

(correction: somehow)
and in all 3 times they were important points and Nadal showed the umpire the position of the ball, I doubt that he showed him the right one because in all 3 times both umpires didn't take a good amount of time to decide while it was in by only a bit in the unofficial replay, so I guess Nadal showed the umpires the wrong mark..

Guys not sure but, I think Nadal somwhow cheated in SF and F in RG, during 2 important points in Djoko's match, ( 1 Djoko was gonna get a break point 2nd Nadal had a break point) Djokovic hit a really strong forehand that just touched the line, and it was called in ( in both cases ) and Nadal called the umpire who saw it and said out, however in the unofficial replay using technology both balls were in same thing happened today but only once in a point when David was going to have a break point

Today was perhaps the most shameful incident on a court after a man came running with fire ---


Good luck Roger for Halle, happy that you are playing doubles also... Allez

TONYN**It will be safe if Roger adds at least 2 more slams in his fleet. When Nadal said he is not as great as Roger cos he has less slams.I know what he is targeting. What would happened if Novak had not reached finals in Wimbledon 2011 and AO 2012?

BOTING: That’s a loser’s argument. 10 months from 2011 Basel to 2012 Cincinnati: Roger won 9 titles (1 Slam, 1 WTF, 4 Masters), won 90% of 79 matches. Roger, Djoko, Murray played so well in 2012 that Nadal cowardly skipped ATP tour for 7 months to play golf tournaments (knee injury is common golf injury – Nadal plays golf right-handed, meaning golf harms his ‘injured’ left knee) waiting for Babolat to develop new racket to increase spin & power. Roger slacked off after winning Cincinnat

I like the facts, we'll see ;)

So Roger must win more majors to protect his record. Period

Nadal will win more than 17 ... that is for sure.
