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.

Delpo and Stan are also at Basel. I have a feeling it is a first for Stan. I am not complaining! Should be fun.

I am from India. As a common citizen in India, I do play and watch cricket mostly. But I started watching Tennis from 2003 after watching Roger Federer on the court. His stylish play and his character on and off the court are just awesome. Till then I am following him. I am lucky to watch his match live on Roland Garros on 2011 when I was in Paris. I started playing Tennis from 2011 as a beginner. Thanks to him. You are the Champion. I am with you Roger. 2014 will be our year.

@Fancyfree,

It's 21st October! Roger will probably get a 1st round bye, so it might be as late as 23th Oct that we see him in action.

It is the first time in 9 years I believe, that Rafa is playing Basel. I think when the organisers thought a Roger was not going to take part this year they must have done some carrot dangling to get Rafa instead. That is my theory anyway. I suppose Rafa could always pull out after today with bad knees or something, but he is meant to be making an appearance in the opening ceremony. The place will go crazy when RF defeats Rafa at Basel! No ifs, just when!
