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.

It was a privilege to watch Roger play during the week, from his uncertain start against Mannerino, the growing of his confidence to his match with Delpo. To have a part in hopefully helping Roger gain some confidence by cheering him on and showing pleasure and approval at every special shot, point, game, break, set and match won. As for the standing ovation, I knew it was long but did not know it was 10minutes. I would not have missed that for the world. It was quite extraordinary. We love him!

Keep on, Roger! Great play, serving, despite those double faults. One thing I must say is that umps are still letting some players getting away with dawdling! The time is a-coming for you: to get it all together in a fearsome and awesome play! Great game! I didn't like the surface, and some of the line calls, etc. You are like a taxiing bird/plane that will go for total lift-off!
