Roger defeated by Djokovic

02.11.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 2

Roger was not able to win his semi-final against Novak Djokovic in Paris-Bercy today, he was defeated 6-4, 3-6, 2-6.

Roger started brilliantly, breaking Djokovic early to take a 2-1 lead and later the set. He scored another break in the beginning of the second set, but Djokovic broke right back and Roger even dropped his serve one more time later on, losing the set. In the decider, Djokovic proved the stronger player, converting break-points to go up 2-1 and even scoring another break to 5-2 and eventually winning the match.

Next week, Roger will play the ATP World Tour Finals in London, having made his qualification for the tournament clear just this week.

Roger, you are the best ever!!!! sometimes a little bit unlucky but the first set was incredible and you know what you have to do to improve your level. Take a rest and have an amazing week in London. Regards from Peru.

so please also practice top spinned backhand with enough speed...you hit flat backhands great but there must be time you gotta hit top spinned backhand(kind of situation where you gotta hit moonball with your backhand) to avoid net errors with your backhand. if you complete this skill, you will have easy time to defense and higher chance of winning tournaments against nadal and djokovic. have this option to your defensive arsenal or you can even use as a weapon if it has enough speed or angle!

make opponents move to shake them wide and wide...I know it's hard to be persistent with single backhand but you can do it and have unbelievable talent of controlling. when you slice the ball, you must place the ball far from nadal so he can move and has higher chance to make mistakes. when you slice the ball right to near nadal, it's the opportunity for nadal right away. since he uses over the head hitting style, he should have less chance of making net errors with sliced ball.

Roger! it's okay you will play better next time!! I kind of see the problem with your backhand. your backhand sometimes is fantastic but sometimes is prone to a lot of easy errors. the key word is the persistence! You see you have much more talent than nadal or djokovic but since nadal brought effective moonball like tactic of persistent tennis, everybody raise up their level of persistency. i can see recently you are now trying to raise up your persistency. plz improve your backhand moonball

IT IS NOT A 32 ISSUE
WHEN HE BELEIVES HE ACHEIVES.....
HE HAS TO KNOW THAT NO ONE IN THE ACTIVE PLAYERS OR THE RETIRED ONES IS AS GOOD AS HE IS.
MENTALLY HE SHOULD GO BACK TO 2006 WHEN HE WAS FULL OF CONFEDENCE THAT NO ONE CAN BEAT HIM...... ALTHOUGH HE HAS DEVELOPED MUCH MORE SKILLS OVER THE YEARS ... NOW HE HAS UNIQUE SKILLS THAT NO ONE HAS EVEN HIM WHEN HE WAS YOUNGER..... ITS NOT ABOUT AGE GUYS
I AM WAITING HIM TO ROCK IN LONDON
TRUE FAN

but he is player better then months ago, he still is the best of all times and will stay the best forever!

all the best next week and 2014

a true fan

ps i m more relaxed know when roger loses. this was not the case last year and the years before. know i accept it. he is only human like us with a wife and kids. fact is that he is getting older, that s the way it goes. i really want to see novak, rafa, delpo or andy when they are 32!!!

work on the backhand down the line. see how its working for stan. he does a really good job by mixing the backhand cross or down the line. to be honest his backhand is more solied than rogers. few things to work on, i'm sure roger could bring some damage to these youngstas but he needs to work on some things. everybody sees his weaknesses.

Team Roger,

You must see what roger is doing wrong! Are you blind or doesnt roger want to listen. Its clear that roger loses because his return of serve is very very poor. he gives to much free points away. His netgame is ok but he does not have to become predictable. Please work harder on the return and make roger a more patient player because sometimes he tries to end the point to quick. thats ok but not when he is break point down. Tell him that he sometimes makes the wrong decisions.
