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.

Shows that our champ is taking many more positives than negatives from his just-defeat in the final - as should we. Such pleasure to see our champ playing so well throughout the tournament and treating us - as he always does - to some magical shot-making. Miami is a v. slow court - not one which favours Rog, but points are up for grabs + No.4 slot! Go Fed! xxxxxxxxxx

I think it's a reasonable draw for Roger.
He only has Ferrer to contend with in the quarters. Djokovic and Murray will slug it out in the 4th quarter, while Nadal's half is filled with danger men - Del Potro, Berdych, Stan etc.!

Does anyone have a link to the trophy ceremony? I didn't get to listen to Roger's speech or listen to the crowds.

Many thanks :)
