Roger out in Shanghai

10.10.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 3

Roger lost his match against Gaël Monfils 4-6, 7-6(5) and 3-6 in Shanghai today.


Roger had a rough start, dropping his first service game which was just enough lead for Monfils to take the opening set. Roger was broken again in the middle of the second set - but this time he broke back powerfully, eventually winning the tie-break. Monfils took the initiative in the decider, breaking to take a 3-1 lead and fianally the match on the first of his three match-points.

Roger's next stop on the Tour will be Basel, his home town. The tournament starts on October 21st.

I only tuned in towards the end so didn't see much! Yes a Tsonga/Del Potro final would have been interesting.

The second semi final is at 1pm UK time.

I think that 1 or 2 may have asked him after us . I regretted that we did not have a camera but I was SO happy it did not matter!!
I saved my money to go and see him a couple more times after that-My friends, I think ,thought that something had happened to me--they were constantly asking me 'how is your friend doing?" Now they are all mad RF fans.
Writing this has brought back the happy feelings & memories.A little bit of magic.
What joy he has given me and millions around the world

I am half watching **FANCYFREE**
Shame, Tsonga has lost. He is one of my favourite players, you never know what you are going to get with him but he has done well after his long lay off during the summer. He always seem to have a smile not far away, he seems a likeable character with a good sense of humour. Did you see Djoko get upset about something earlier?
**SDANU** Thank you for update on the cyclone. Glad you will be ok but my thoughts are with those who are in its path, must be scary!

I was watching, Fancyfree.
Tsonga lost 7-5 in the second set.
He's a better shot maker than Djoko but consistently underperforms.

I wanted to see a Tsonga v Del Po final.

Next you know who against Del Potro.
10/12/2013 | 12:18 PM
That's it. 7-5 - the second set and match to Djokovic.

Very quick on his feet.Good serving.
My colleague Helen remembers me saying 'this young boy will be No 1 one day. I am going to ask him for his autograph."I think that he was rather surprised that I asked him We mentioned that we enjoyed watching him play & hoped to see him again--he thanked us with that lovely shy smile of his
The interesting thing is that it was the first time that I had asked anyone for an autograph --that is how special I thought he was as I am not a seeker of them.

It looks as if Tsonga has lost to Djokovic in two sets. 4-5 currently. Anyone watching?
