Roger defeated by Rafa

17.08.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 2

Roger showed a strong match against Rafael Nadal in Cincinnati, but eventually had to admit a close 7-5, 4-6, 3-6 defeat.

"I'm happy with my progress along the way," Roger said. "Could have won tonight; should have won tonight. Who knows? But at the end, I think Rafa's confidence and the way he's playing at the moment got him through."

Our champ was in good shape, he varied his serve excellently and moved very well. After winning the first set, at 4-4 in the second, he was just 6 points away from winning the match. He made the 27-year-old Spaniard work for it from beginning to end, when he saved four match points before falling.

As defending champion Roger will drop over 800 points - making him fall back to number 7 behind Tomas Berdych and Juan Martin del Potro in the rankings.

HEY EVERYBODY - YOU KNOW ROG LOVES US FOR WORRYING ABOUT WHO HE MIGHT FACE IN QF ETC.

HOWEVER ROG IS A SMART COOKIE - HE'S NOT LOOKING BEYOND THE 1st ROUND - HE KNOWS BETTER - IF YOU DON'T WIN THE FIRST ROUND(S), FORGET THE QFs.

BESIDES, WHO SAYS NADAL WILL GET TO QFs ?

RIGHT?

SO ONE MATCH AT A TIME AND WE WISH ROGER GOOD HEALTH AND A GOOD MATCH EVERYTIME HE PLAYS.

LET THE GAMES BEGIN :-) AND THANKS EVERYONE FOR CARING.

Hey Champ, take each opponent seriously and be in top shape for the QF.. Expectations are low, so that can work in your favor.. You have nothing to lose from now on.. You just give all you got in the QF and reach SF. To me it doesn't matter the result in SF.. You won 5 straight USOs.. To me the QF is your ultimate match (if Nadal gets there).. Take match by match until you grab the title..

Do any of Rafa's opponents look like they could beat him before QF?

I so hope someone does....Go Roger

It seems to b his fate, in these days of slump if he has to win titles he has to beat the trio one after the other. It is then dat not only will he win a title but once again register hi supremacy and believe me dat will a hell lot of good to his psychology

Federer's path:

Federer opens against Zemlja in 1st round, Berlocq or Giraldo in 2nd,, querrey in 3rd, Nishikori in 4th, and then Nadal in quarters!!!!
