Roger defeated by Nadal

10.11.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 2

Roger's quest for the title at the 2013 ATP World Tour Finals was stopped with a 5-7, 3-6 defeat by Rafael Nadal in the semis today.

The start of the match was very tight and chances looked good for Roger as he had break points on three occasions but unfortunately never managed to go all the way. It was Nadal who then did manage to break Roger's serve to take a 5-4 lead. But as Nadal was serving for the set, Roger battled back and scored a break himself - only for the Spaniard to do so as well on Roger's serve and then serve for the set successfully. In the second set, Roger was broken to fall behind 2-3 and committing too many errors - 32 in total - he was unable to fight back.

We sold our tickets to the Finals of the WTF, whilst we find ourselves with no real interest to see the Finals without you. And seeing two drug cheats as well ( am I getting cynical). Also...It is ludicrous to have the Finals on a Monday and so late as well. Do the organisers ever think that the spectators have to take the Underground so late at night from the 02, which is another 20 minutes from Central London ? Why can't they start the Finals @ 1, 2 or 3 pm on a Sunday, instead of a Monday ?

Dear Roger, congrats on making the best of very difficult season. Was really nice to see you making the semis - and Stan too! Would have been great if there were a Swiss final, maybe next year! Go get the much needed rest, and we'll again be rooting for you come January!

Like many here im pleased that Novak kept Rafa from winning the wtf...im no Novak fan but now i hope the Nadal fans can p*** off from this website and go and cry on Dopal's website. Had the easiest draw and still couldn't win.

There will Never be a wtf champ like Roger...missed seeing you at the final darling but you had a good tournament. Did better than Rafa when playing Nole.

I love you Roger, wish you tons of success in 2014 and beyond.

contd. light. My exact feelings. So I will wait for you will win again.
Today I was so happy that the butt picking, front scratching, finger smelling soon to be bald player lost. I am not a fan of Novak but today I cheered for him. Although the court was made slower, and the draw so easy and Brad Gilbert was preening it was a fantastic loss . Keep well Roger. Looking forward to 2014. Gods' Blessings to you and your family.

In 2008 one of your fans Homer Mendoza wrote "So I will wait, and pray, and hope, and believe. For this is the only thing I can do. I will do this for as long as it takes, through every loss, and every win. Because regardless of whatever changes, one thing stays the same. Roger Federer is the only tennis player I have ever seen that can inspire me with such ecstasy, such agony, such a profound depth of feeling that makes even defeat seem heroic, and paints so bitter a loss in such a beautiful lig

Congratulations Nole

Few champions can win this very very prestigious event. El Toro still hasn't - In fact he hasn't won any championships since he returned to the top. May this streak continue for a very very long time..

I'm sure Roger let Rafa win yesterday just so he could watch him get beat in the finals today.

ROGER FOREVER
