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.

A pesar del resultado de ayer ante Juan Martin, quiero decirte Roger que jugaste muy bien, me encanta por que estoy de nuevo poco a poco viendo al Roger Federer de hace otros tiempos. Por la lucha que tuviste, te merecias haber ganado, pero se que de aqui en adelante vendran los triunfos... Toda la buena energia para el Master de Paris.... SIGUE LUCHANDO POR QUE TODAVIA TIENES MUCHO POR JUGAR, TORNEOS POR GANAR Y NUEVAMENTE VOLVER A SER EL NUMERO UNOOOOOOO...... MUCHOS BESOS Y ABRAZOS.....

Dearest Roger, you are playing brilliantly and are a joy to watch. How wonderful that you can at last play freely again! I'm just sad about yesterday's match, which you should have won. Exactly equal points, but a loss nevertheless .... shades of last year's WTF ... how tough this tennis scoring system can be! Congratulations to Juan Martin, but you still should have won. May 2014 bring you luck, success and a swift return to the top.
