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.

This might just be the wake-up call Roger needs. Remember 2012 Halle?

Federer lost to Haas, in his home tournament. could this be a omen?

@SDANU thanks so much again. please please post more here. I have great respect for the Indian culture. A lot of Indians here speaks perfect Japanese.

@SDANU thanks so much. I totally agree with u. Our maestro is fine. Hewitt waited for a life time to achieve this and his coach Roche also waited for a long time to prove something. So be it. Our Maestro will be ready now.
