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.

You're right, and we'll just see what the future holds. Its not all about records.

Hey, roger had a good run but he is older and not committed physically and mentally. These foolish fans can't will you to win. If by a miracle you win wimby or US, quit on a high not like Pete.

To be fan or not to be fan " the rest is silence"

Never have been a Nadal fan but he is a true champion and fighter. He can realistically win five more French,throw in a few Wimbledon's and he beats Roger. Roger dropped to four.

We should have an interesting Lance Armstrong case if ever Fuentes succeeds in selling his story

Not a fan from Nadal but it is a great achievement.
If he gets 17 GS or more it would be painful because RF is much more talented and allround. Would be heartbreaking.

The records he cant reach are most week nr 1 and most consecutive weeks as nr 1

Lets go for Wimbledon!!

RG2013 is a history now, so I look forward to Wimbledon. But first HALLE!!! I've just heard that Roger will play with Tommy Haas in double, that's really great news. I hope it'll be a transmission on the Internet. Good luck Fed, I'll keep my fingers crossed <3
