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.

RolandGaros 2013 for Nadal, so 2 last grandslam in 2013 for others (Novak, Muray, Delpotro or Roger ... )

SHAOCHIA, Roger won 4 Hamburg Masters (9 ft sea level) – it’s slowest, coolest, dampest clay Masters. 2006 Rome: on Friday, Roger played 229-point 3-setter quarterfinal w Almagro. Saturday, Roger played 229-pt 3-setter semifinal w No. 3 Nalbandian. Sunday, Roger had 2 matchpoints against Nadal in 5+ hour, 353-point, 5-setter final. It’s illogical to claim Roger won 2009 Madrid because 23-year young Nadal played 245-point semifinal after Rafa's first 3 easy rounds (W/O, 2 quick matches).

John McEnroe said: (a) cool, damp clay makes it harder for small Ferrer to create pace; but (b) such conditions benefit Federer / Djokovic. He’s right. In 2011 French Open Roger played long tough semifinal against Djokovic. Then tired Roger played close final on warm day against fresh Nadal: breakpoints: Roger 5/15; Nadal 7/15; Nadal won 52.3% points. Nadal won 52.8% against Djokovic 2 days ago. Nadal could have lost both matches. Pro sports competition is no place for loser’s attitude.
