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.

Well done Roger and you are getting back to your best. Good luck for the future in all things. Thanks also to Pinky for the video of the ovation given to Roger by his home crowd. He is so humble and he is loved wherever he goes. I said to one of my daughters when he was playing Vasil that his home crowd barrack so hard for him and love him. And she texted back he is loved in Lilydale too which is where I live and is in Australia.

It's always hard to watch your sad face after the defeat, but after all that applause was somehow easier.
Early in the season you look tired and unprepared for new matches, which is reflected in the results. Today, after a long time you look fresh, healthy and rested. I hope that all problems are behind you and that we will all enjoy in your beautiful game.
Wish you all the best.
Your fan forever.

Hi Roger what a great match you played in the final and so unlucky to loose your service in the final set to those double faults! I guess it was all very tense and it was also wonderful to see you back to really good form.

Roll on Paris and you can do it!

very best wishes to you and your family

SDANU,

We all have said it before to you. Don't lose hope in our Maestro...
He played the whole week GREAT. I thought he would not win because he would be tired. But he was not tired at all. He made a 7 year younger player play his a.. off just to beat a 32 year player who had not had a good year so far.
For that ALONE you should be proud.

There is no shame in losing to Delpo, he defeated Novak, Andy and Rafa this year.
He is not just a nobody.

Don't lose hope on our Goat. It takes ti

I love Maestro, my heart was broken yesterday, but at the same time I am very proud of you champ due to your fighting, your determination.
You deserve all the respect shown by your fellow citizens to you.
you give tennis more than anybody does, and give us unlimited happiness through all these years
Thank you Roger for being you

Despite your loss, I am so satisfied with your level of play for the match.
Hope you get your ticket to London.

Roger, I think it's a must to say at least once again that you played amazing yesterday! We can't be really sad. I'm very happy and pleased! Wish you the best luck in Paris! Continue playing your beautiful tennis! Love you so much!
