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.

Last time Rafa was bageled was, as Shatir properly pointed out, in the WTF RR match against roger in 2011. 6-3, 6-0 for the maestro who wanted to draw definitive blood and beat rafa for the first time in the year andhe gave a tennis clinic. He can still do it, he will recover his bloodshot eyes and return to the winning ways sooner than later, oefully in Basel in front of his homecrowd where he has been extremely succesfull.

Roger has bageled Rafa 3 times, once each on Grass, Clay and Indoors.
Rafa has bageled Roger only once in that dreaded final of 2008 Roland Garros.
Go Rog!

Roger: The best tennis I ever saw you play was in WTF 2010, this seems unconnected but that game, that solid performance in which you beated Murray, Djoko and Rafa, all of them under two hours of play, was spurred after a heart breaking semi-final loss against Monfils. Use this defeat to move forward, ou should be not three hours a day on court but five hours a day on court training and 2 hours at the gym. Your legs are perfect ,now is a question of streghtening your core and arms to fire bombs

Bageled? Might be by Fed in 2011 World Tour Finals.

oops - bageled

Nope! I wonder when the last time Rafa was beheld?

That 2nd point was an incredible behind-the-back smash by Rafa. And the approach shot swung miles! No bagel I guess.
