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.

And the players can be forgiven for playing with both hands.
A single handed BH player Vs a two handed player BH
can be compared to
arm wrestling with single hand Vs two hands.

And still Roger managed to win lets say 10 slams in an era of tennis dominated by double handed BH is a testament to his greatness. A proof that he is one and only GOAT.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF ATP MAKES a couple of NEW RULEs like these ?
1) All players must play with wooden racquets which give NO aid for power. Must generate the shot power by themselves without any aid of the racquet.
2) The racquet size should NOT be larger than 90 sq inch.
Using high-tech racquets is a crime. Its cheating. Its equivalent to using PEDs.

Eliminate the aid of technology and then we shall see who the REAL GOAT is. That will be the ONE and ONLY RF.

Why does Nadal's voice seem so high and squeaky these days ? He sounds like a munchkin.....it's really weird.
