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.

what's this BS about the raquet and the head and the size, and the hitting power BLAH BLAH BLAH.... when will you realize it's just in his head?? it's all in his head! had more Break points than delpo and didn't capitalize.... had 3 double faults and didn't overcome... but he still improved mentally.. great things to come... hold on to your panties !

Dearest Roger!

Great match, the way you played in the second set was fantastic! You are not the winner today, but the way you played during this tournament will hopefully give you a lot of confidence for Paris, and - of course - London.

Allez, Roger!!!!

Love,
Justine

****SDANU******

And whoever else talks about racquet switch and what not. Anytime you switch it is not easy - you feel the change in how you hit. He tried it out, maybe he will keep working on it. It's not an overnight where he will feel like he is playing great with new bat. He needs power, but he can't just add 8 inches and quin rest of his game without time. We hope that Roger will win soon.
