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.

@CJM,

That's not possible because Novak is the defending champion in Shanghai. Even if he wins the final, he won't gain any points (while if he loses the final, he'll lose some points).
Currently there's already 800 points separating them (assuming Rafa loses today's Semi).
Rafa has no points to defend till next year's February or March so I don't believe Rafa can get off the no 1 ranking till then.

We know Djoko is in the final, will it mean he will go back to no.1 again if Delpo beats Rafa, anyone know? Only a vague interest, but cannot be much between them at top.
Roger is the only genuine no.1, regardless of what he is doing!
If Rafa does win this I think he will lose to Djoko, because of the Delpo effect, so Delpo may as well go through anyway!

Rafa's serve broken. Superb two points in this game! These were the kind of points Rafa used to win against innumerable others.

Rafa is broken in the second set!

I have just come in and discovered the score ! No bagel but 6:2 to Delpo ! Good on him. Still a good score and effort. I will love it if Delpo defeats Rafa and even more so go on to defeat Djoko ! Some superb tennis going on, Delpo is going well and has just broken Rafa again. Wow!
