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.

This is the moment of truth with Schumacher, FANCYFREE. Will he come around and in what condition he will be in? Really is an awful situation I do hope that for his and his family's sake he is not a vegetable. I had seen a report earlier but not confirmed at the time that they were gradually bringing him around and were seeing his eyes blink, which may be a good omen. I see it is now confirmed they are bringing him out of coma.

who is right? My information is the match tomorrow is starting 1pm GMT and 2pm here.
It is on my TV guide also at 2pm. In case I am right I do not want anyone to be an hour out and miss our Rogi!
