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.

Roger plays tomorrow at two o'clock in the afternoon with Ilija Bozoljac and Dusan Lajovic with Stan.
Roger does not play doubles.

The journalists mentioned that Stan is hurt, but nothing is certain. I sincerely hope that this is not true.

Novak does not play against Switzerland, definitely.

Your breaking news is a bit late in the day. We have all known this for hours!

The official Davis Cup website - http://www.daviscup.com/en/home.aspx

I see on Live Score Hunter they are showing other Davis Cup rubbers so when our time comes I'm certain we will be able to see Roger and Stan play theirs'.

You are ignorant, I am not. I know the complete Davis Cup history of Roger Federer. You don't know. Since which year Roger is playing Davis Cup? How many matches did he win? How many Davis Cup ties did he play? Can you answer? And many more Davis Cup questions about Roger that you don't know the answer. Do not make comments based on incomplete and incorrect information.
