Out in Wimbledon

26.06.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 3

Roger suffered his earliest defeat at Wimbledon since losing in the first round in 2002 today. He lost his second-round match against Sergej Stakhovsky 7-6(5), 6-7(5), 5-7, 6-7(5).


"It's normal that after all of a sudden losing early, having being in Grand Slam quarter-finals 36 times, people feel it's different. But I still have plans to play for many more years to come," Roger said.


Roger started well and secured the first set in the tie-break. But Stakhovsky went on to take the second set tie-break to level. Not being able to score a break himself, our champ was broken in set three - enough for his opponent to finally take a lead in sets. Roger fell back another break in the fourth set, but this time he managed to level at 3-3. Unfortunately he did not make the points in the final tie-break, falling back 2-5 and eventually admitting defeat after just three hours of play.

It was Roger's first defeat by a player ranked outside the top 100 since losing to Richard Gasquet (ranked at 101) in Monte Carlo in 2005. He will now fall back to at least number 5 in the world rankings.

When Roger Lost at Rotterdam this year I was kind of mad and wrote "Roger is playing like Number 8 ranking" (and of course my comment was censored and was erased) But Next week Roger Will be Number 6 if am not wrong

I think since then Roger has show some improvement, but still falling.

Make your Legend Bigger. I know you can Do It!!!!!

Best for All

Determination is playing the same way and you win.
Stubbornness is playing the same way and you lose.

You are my favourite player and haven't had the same interest in watching Wimbledon
without you playing there. I know you will be back and hopefully win the Championship again next year. Good luck for the rest of the tournaments.
