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.

Ask the Swiss people, they wil tell you how strong was the commitment of Rogeria with his national team when he was in his best years.

Switzerland never will have a chance to win the Davis Cup and that's the Rogeria's fault and his selfiness.

Fancy Free,

Don't think so.
I had enough laughs seeing you and Hulietta cracking up for the last 3 hours.
It was simply hilarious!

Poor Huli, he almost collapsed, :-)

Romeo - wrong again.
Roger has played 25 matches since 2005, since Nadal "broke" onto the scene, at least two ties in every match.
Three strikes, son.

Okay, I'm pretty much done talking to him.
He has nothing interesting or worthwhile to say - yep - boring.

"Rogeria played many Davis cup matches when he wasn't number 1 of the world, and skipped it mainly when Nadal broke into scene.

He put that tournament out of his concerns and disappointed a whole nation."

I don't care. You are one hell of a bore.
