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.

OH HUGHSIE, YOU ALWAYS WRITE INTERESTINGLY AND FAIRLY

- I CAN'T BELIEVE (JEALOUS AND ADMIRING) YOU WERE IN THE RIGHT PLACE AND TIME AND ALSO HAD THE INSIGHT TO IDENTIFY ROGER'S TALENT AND TENNIS ELEGANCE when you saw him at his very early age as a teenager, TO ALMOST IMMEDIATELY BECOME AN ARDENT FAN.

HOW APPROPRIATE THAT YOU WILL HAVE A TABLE (? WOW JUST peRFect !!!) AT THE DINNER/EXO ! AND THEN AO !!

AND YOU ACTUALLY WROTE AND ASKED FOR THIS WEBSITE - MARVELLOUS AND THANK YOU

Thank you so much for the Crazy Federer Addicts article. I must admit I am one of them and was absolutely crushed when Roger lost to C'mon (who btw I am ashamed to even admit is Australian).

The article summed up my feelings exactly and highlighted that I need to be more realistic in my expectations. I will now try to work on that and just enjoy the fact that Roger is playing while he is still playing. :-/

Hi Rog, It' a warming up for you, you have a good team behind you, and you have MANY supporters!!!!. Take care.

after this loss i am actually kinda staying positive and ignoring all the negativity around me.Everybody is making a hullabaloo about this loss as if Hewitt bageled him in the first round.nobody is looking at the good thing that he made the final and he was playing singles and doubles which might have caused fatigue but still he took it to the distance had he created opportunities in the scorching heat.As far as roger is satisfied and not calling this as a setback why is the world crying??!!!

.Say whatever you feel like no opposition and no issues. but you got no right to comment on my monicker or me being his no.1 fan or not or about my upbringing thats my property.you get this straight into your head. I am not here to fight or argue but it annoys me when some people misuse the "OPEN FORUM".And the match was not that bad.He will win GS in future i can bet you anything upon that.I shared my feeling because this is an OPEN FORUM.I can write what i want.And m not using foul words.

Thanks for the link. It was a bit scary how much I recognized myself in it :-)
I used to be very upset when Roger lost a match.
