Out in Hamburg

20.07.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 3

Roger was defeated by Argentine qualifier Federico Delbonis 6-7(7), 6-7(4) in the semifinals in Hamburg today.

"He played well, he was a little more aggressive," Roger said.

Our champ took a 2-1 lead to start with, but was broken right back and had to save two set points to take the set into a tiebreaker. All looked good there as he took a 4-2 lead but did not manage to convert a set point before then dropping the set. Roger had to keep up the fight, defending break points right in his first service game. Eventually taking the set into another tiebreaker, Roger committed a series of errors before Delbonis wrapped up his win.

Next up for Roger is a trip home as he will play the tournament in Gstaad in the Swiss mountains next week.

It's always the same old boring story with those guys; they defeat federer, but get beaten by their next opponent. And then you never hear from them again.

2 unusual defeats in a row ! So what ! It's only very peculiar circumstances and bad luck. What is it compare to his winnings. Why change where you barely always win !
End of next year he'll probably be nr 1 again. A bit of understanding please !

I agree. I've read the thing she wrote and to be honest it moved me. And we should thank all the other good fans too. Because of them it doesn't hurt as much when Roger loses. It just stings a little :)

Roger..win or lose..It isn't the point for you now.Be strong and practise with new racket for use to it.It will be difficult for you but new racket will help you very much.Plesae trust in yourself.We known that you felt lack of confident from new racket.If everyone noticed his game that Roger couldn't control the first serve.We must give Roger a time to use to and practise with new racket.One thing ..i am respect Roger is ..He has the brave heart to start new things in the real tournament.
