Roger defeated in final

17.03.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 2

Roger was defeated 6-3, 3-6, 6-7(3) by Novak Djokovic in today's final in Indian Wells.

Roger started brilliantly, taking a 3-0 lead thanks to aggressive play and great serves, taking the first set. Unfortunately he couldn't continue on the exact same level in the second set, falling behind with an early break. In the decider, Djokovic was a break up again and serving for the set when Roger came back with a fantastic return game to  stay in the match. Later, in the tie-break, Roger was clearly defeated 3-7.

fastest hard court: of course, Dubai. US Open used to be fast, but, now not as fast as Dubai.

So, 3 fastest hard courts according to me as of today: Dubai, US Open, Cincinnati, then Indian Wells, then Australian Open, then those artificial O2 courts London

@fancyfree: Miami is the slowest hard court that u will ever get to see any where. Even the clay court that I play on is 10 times faster than the Miami courts..

So what is the fastest hard court?

Miami is probably the slowest of the hard courts.
The fact that that's where Nadal first beat Fed should give us a clue.

Roger can always hold his own if he's serving well, which he did for most of Indian Wells (33 consecutive service holds for the tournament and only twice broken against Djoko against two breaks back).

I noted the baseline rallies instigated by Novak last night. Can Roger prevent this next time in Miami and is Miami a faster surface?
