Out against Robredo

03.09.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger lost 6-7(3), 3-6, 4-6 to Tommy Robredo of Spain on Monday night in round four of the US Open.

"I kind of self-destructed, which is very disappointing, especially on a quicker court. Your serve helps you out. You're going to make the difference somewhere. I just couldn't do it. It was a frustrating performance," Roger said. He had enough opportunities to find his way into the match. Roger level to 2-2 after trailing 0-2 in the opening set. And he did so once again as Robredo broke his serve to 4-5, then matching the break and taking the score to 5-5 and finally taking the set into a tie-breaker. But over the two hours and 24 minutes of play, our champ accumulated 43 unforced errors and managed to convert only these 2 of 16 break points. 

Next up for Roger is the Shanghai Rolex Masters in October.

KEMNA - because counting time between points is too much for an umpire to do, it needs to be done by someone in the operaters room and they feed the umpire with this information. Djokovic would have broken Nadal to love just on accumulated time violations!

No such luck. :P Rafa has no points to defend till next year's Australian Open, so he will pick up points everywhere. Djokovic has maximum points to defend in a lot of places - Shanghai, WTF London, Brisbane, Australian Open etc. (i.e. he cannot gain any more points in these tournaments because he's already the champion there)

Yes it would be terrific if Novak takes the title back after only a couple of weeks !!!
