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.

Hi Roger,
Not a bad match at all!

Sos enorme Roger! No te imaginas lo feliz que me pone verte jugar a pesar de los resultados. Siempre te voy a apoyar pese a todo. Te quiero con el corazón, no te retires nunca. Gracias por tanta magia, por enseñarnos a nosotros (los Tenistas) que no sólo es saber jugar para ser profesional, sino que hay que ser humilde y pelearla siempre hasta el final. Tenes un corazón enorme, no cambies nunca. Besos y mucha fuerza y suerte.

Apparently, confidence is coming back.
Not in the least place to your fans:-)
