Roger defeated in the semis

24.01.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 3

Roger's quest for the title at the 2014 Australian Open was stopped with a 6-7(4), 3-6, 3-6 loss against Rafael Nadal in the semis today.


The two players started with a tough opening set with only Nadal managing two break points which Roger fought off successfully. Nadal was the more efficient one in the tie-break, eventually winning the set after just under an hour of play. Roger had to drop his serve for the first time in the middle of the second set, falling 2-4 behind and later losing the set. An early break in set number three seemed to give Roger some momentum as he broke right back - but unfortunately only to drop his serve once again right afterwards. Nadal then held his serve and managed to break our champ a third time in the set to win the match and book a spot in Sunday's final against Roger's fellow countryman, Stanislas Wawrinka.

For me, the most touching video about Roger as an athlete, son, father, husband and champion of humility with cosmic, eternal music of Sigur Ros.
Only one remark: Sampras presence to watch the fall of his 14 GS record only once with Roger in an unforgettable spectacle without tricks or suspicions.

Hello everyone,
FANCYFREE, I'm not the troll, and I'm not mad at you.
If you have the patience, read carefully my dialogues with him and then... laugh. You will understand.
I have to correct my first post of yesterday: Team 1 is: (not are) and the answer is B.
Maybe will be impossible not allow interferences like this in this forum, some with humor but other very offensives.
I just wanted to show to everyone that not lose control is possible although ignore is the best thing to do. He was be
