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.

*Fancyfree* Yes, Ferrer played a brilliant match! So pleased for him...I imagine it will be Djoko, but the way Ferrer played today, who knows?

@Fancyfree,

Ferrer seems to be a solid indoors player. He crushed Novak the last time they played indoors - 6-3, 6-1 in London 2011 (a very dominant year for Novak).
His level of play seemed very solid today as well.

I'm sure you've taken many positives from this tournament Rog...all to do now is to wish you all the very very best for next week. Love you, love your tennis champ, xxxxxxxxxxxxx

I'm just in and see it's Ferrer in the final! Surely though it's Novak's win?

I don't think Rafa is a main contender for the WTF. I've been watching since Shanghai (even Beijing, actually), his play looks more and more scratchy.
He hits his brilliant winners when his opponent fails to put it away, but his movement is clearly worse. He isn't able to cover the court and put balls back in. He's also making a lot more mishits and unforced errors in rallies.

I see Djokovic as the only real threat - and I SOO hate to see that guy winning, esp against Roger!

...I blame you and your sweet precious sister completely...and kiss 'em on the forehead...That isn't what I did...because I wasn't all that successful..ever...but I don't consider myself unsuccessful either...financially or otherwise. Life is lifing along and I am enjoying the ride.

My one and only child, when he was about 8 said to me out of the blue that he was sorry from keeping me from being financially successful in my business life. I was floored...he is everything to me and I can't imagine that I would be any more or less successful if I hadn't made the decision to make him my top priority in life. If your daughters ever recognize any quality of your game that isn't excellent or golden I am imagining that it won't be too hard to chuckle deeply and say yes my darlin

Dearest Roger,

Don't worry too much. You played a great tournament and the way you played hopefully gives you a lot of belief going to London. Rest now and attack in the O2! Of course your group is not easy, but well, nothing is easy at the WTF.

Good Luck, Maestro!

Love,
Justine
