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.

I prefer to sacrifice this tournament's win, and Roger to win Paris (1000 points and 23 Masters), or even better Australia 2014!!!!

Tough one today, Roger, but I'm very happy to see you play so well again! Delpo was great today, but you almost had it! I loved seeing the desire and fight in you today! I know you will come back and play great to close the season! We are all behind you, Champ! Love you, and God bless!

"It's always a pleasure to play Roger. He's the hero here and for me my biggest inspiration," said Del Potro.

Federer said: "I lifted my level and in the end wasn't playing too badly."

Roger please don't be so modest! X
