Out in the doubles

10.06.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 2

Roger and Tommy Haas - last year's finalists in Halle - played their first doubles match today. Unfortunately it was also be their last for the moment as they were defeated 6-7(3), 4-6 by Philipp Petzschner and Jürgen Melzer.

Roger and Tommy Haas started well and took a 2:0 lead but their opponents gradually took control from there. "It was great fun. It's a pity we didn't make it but I did make a few mistakes too many so I'm not quite happy today", Roger commented.

Roger will play his opening match in the singles draw against Cedric Marcel Stebe or Jimmy Wang, a qualifier.

I guess both of you didn't have enough time to get adjusted to each other.
It was fun watching you play this doubles, although you've played better ones!

So, time to concentrate just on singles.
Only the idea that I have to wait up to Wednesday to see you playing again is too hard ;-)

Roger: At least you had a lot of fun, as you said maybe it was difficult to stay focus. I think you should carry the team to London and make a surprise Entry there, both of you are amazing grass players, you should be able to win tournaments together. The draw in Halle is really hard as I see but it is a really nice warm-up for your favourite slam. Honestly speaking, if you stay focused you shall win both tournaments since there is no ther player like you in Grass. Then Rise and win ALL.

So sorry that you both lost but it seemed that you had a wonderful time playing together, so I hope you have both enjoyed and learned from the experience ;)
You and Tommy should participate in doubles from tome to time, I think you can be a great team in the future.
Good luck with the singles, we'll be supporting you as always!!

Sorry I got this completely wrong, had just read on the internet that you were playing doubles, did not realize you already lost and I have not yet arrived in Europe, will have to come and watch you play singles then!!
