Roger defeated after fight

05.11.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

After a tough battle at the ATP World Tour Finals today, Roger was defeated 4-6, 7-6(2), 2-6 by Novak Djokovic in his first match in Group B.

Roger was not able to convert two break points towards the end of the first set and later dropped his serve as Djokovic grew in confidence. The second set was a true battle, Roger came from 40-0 down to break his opponent and gain a 3-2 lead. But with three more breaks in the following games the players eventually fought their way into a tie-breaker - which Roger clearly won. The decider was then in the hands of Djokovic who wrapped up the match after 2 hours 22 minutes.

Loved that suit though... Federer's the James Bond of tennis.

Roger's awards were one for sportsmanship, voted for by his peers, one for being the fan's favourite and one for his humanitarianism voted by the ATP.

Good luck against Gasquet tomorrow Roger. I hope you can polish him off swiftly in straight sets. Thank you for the fight yesterday. I do not like seeing you unhappy and losing. I want your beautiful smile! I much prefer the zebra outfit to the other one. I felt this was a blue zebra last night and not the grey I saw in Basel. Or is it my eyes or the tv screen?

CJM Roger has a heavy cold so no wonder he was below par. He asked for some tissues at the chair! Novak in his interview had a scarf wrapped round his throat albeit not tight enough! lol

In his short speech today he was sniffing!

What a frustrating match last night from Roger. I actually think he did a great job considering. From the start he looked tired and subdued, Djokovic also. It looked like a big attack of self doubt which stopped closing the first set which was a great shame. A wonderful fight for the tie break though and who would have guessed how decisive that would be, but it took Rogers last energy away. I was concerned about too many big matches together. Basel,Paris then top 8,too much! He is a brave lion!
