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.

Thanks for the information. I thought when the draw determined that it can not be changed.

Is going to play Rogeria finally?

Its a shame Fedrinka is not paying doubles but they cannot do it all and with the rankings of the Serbians, neither is it necessary for them to try, which they have in the past! It might all change though if Djoko suddenly decides to join in!
I am a little surprised that Lammer and not Laaksonen which has been kept. I saw Laaksonen play Delpo in Basel, he lost but made a game of it for one so young, I was quietly impressed. I surmise Lammer is more of a doubles player. Hopp Suisse!

Modesti, it's still possible that Novak can play, as the team captain can substitute up until an hour before the match.

Avoid replying to WHOREMONGER who is a troll and vulgar to boot.

What a pity Stan and Roger doesn't play doubles! That would have been such fun to watch.

Confirmed: Djokovic won't play, he suffers phimosis and his foreskin must be removed inmediately.

Otherwise Jelena has warned him she would cancel the wedding.
