Roger defeated in final

05.01.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 2

Roger was defeated by Llyeton Hewitt in the Brisbane final 1-6, 6-4, 3-6.

 

"I didn't play great today which is a bit unfortunate. But also Lleyton was the best player I played this week. He made it toughest on me. So I have a clear idea what I need to work on, and I have a clear idea where my mind and body is at. I'm very hungry and eager to attack the Australian Open next week," Roger said. The Open starts on January 13th.

Roger committed a total of 22 unforced errors in the opening set and was broken three times. He fought back in the second set, securing it thanks to a break in in the ninth game. But our champ dropped his serve once again in the fourth game of the decider and unfortunately could not make use of his seven break points, eventually having to admit defeat after 2h 07.

Thanks Paddyt, for your wonderful words for Toby and myself! I would be honoured if wonderful posters like yourself can put in your good words for fellow federer fans like Toby and Ranjit on their articles. They would love to hear it from such wonderful posters as yourself, Hulietta, ILR92 and Chieko, Shatir, CJM Yukimi and all our Fed fans :)

@SDANU Thank you so very much again and again. Though I have faith in our Maestro and believe in him, my limited knowledge of the tennis game did not allow me to understand so well as you have explained to all of us. It is so great to know. You are great to all of us.

@PADDYT
So lets sum it up. The reasons for the Loss are

1) Extra power of the new racquet -- learning to control it is a WIP.

2) Fast court speed did NOT help 1)

3) Hewitt's high level of play. I heard the commentators say Hewitt's speciality is the BH lob. He did execute a few lobs perfectly at crucial points.

4) Roger played the MOST NUMBER OF MATCHES in Brisbane (3 doubles + 4 singles ) AND long practice sessions in scorching heat RESULTING IN EXHAUSTION.

LOSS IS UNDERSTANDABLE
