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.

Not being hypocritical Boting, Roger was seeded 1 in this tournament and should have been in the Final. That he lost is something else!

Watching a little of the Final and really hard to believe Roger isn't there. Very amateurish match.

NEW RACKET OLD RACKET DUMMY RACKET
WILL NOT TAKE AWAY THAT FEDERER IS IN HIS AUTUMN OF HIS CAREER.
HIS SKIL IN TENNIS AND WHAT HE HAS ACHIEVED IN THIS SPORT ARE ALREADY
PLACED IN THE HISTORY BOOKS. ONLY THING WHAT HE STILL DESERVES
IS THE " HALL OF FAME"

Agree with your comments--I think that those of us who also play tennis will agree with you.
I also hope that your book coincides with Roger's revival'

****RE Roger's new racquet**** may I suggest that you go to the ATP website and read a press release from Wilson who state that the racquet is NOT new but on TRIAL reason why it is black. They also emphasise that Roger may reject it, and that the size being quoted is INCORRECT!
