Roger defeated in final

27.10.2013 | Tennis

Roger showed great tennis in today's final at the Swiss Indoors but was defeated by Juan Martin Del Potro 6-7(3), 6-2, 4-6. 

Roger fought hard and both players displayed a terrific match. Our champ admitted a break in game number eight but came right back with a re-break to love. Unfortunately Del Potro proved the better player in the tie-breaker, taking the opening set. Roger jumped to a 2-0 lead in the second set and scored another break at the end of the set, wrapping it up neatly. The start into the decider was very unlucky for Roger. He was serving for the game at 40-15 but committed a total of three double-faults to lose the advantage and the game. Not able to score a break himself, Roger had to admit defeat after 2 hours 20 minutes. 

Roger will play the tournament in Paris next week. He needs to win one single match there in order to qualify for the World Tour Finals.

Hey Champ, just read that you were already at the practice court in Bercy... Kudos to your zeal! You were almost there... To me, you'd have won it yesterday had you not been pushed to the longer 3rd set the day before... But great effort last week anyway.. Lot of positives to take... Keep rocking... I'm already waiting for 2014...

Dear Roger, you should be happy with your efforts to show great tennis in the final.

Best regards from Montreal!

My Darling Champion:
My eyes are burning and all puffed up from crying over the standing ovation you received from your Swiss spectators which I watched over and over again. Bless them for they have done well to show you the adoration and respect your deserve and hope it was of some consolation to you. That, and knowing that you have already won that trophy 5 times.

Best of Luck in Paris. You lead and we follow, we cheer & support.

Tennis=Roger what else ..

Luv u
Grace/NY
