Roger defeated by Nishikori

27.03.2014 | Tennis

Unfortunately Roger lost his quarter final im Miami against Kei Nishikori 6-3, 5-7 and 4-6.

"I just couldn’t find my rhythm on my serve today, which was surprising especially after how well I played and served especially this week. It didn’t take off the same way it did during the day time. You can expect that with the temperature drop," Roger said.

After easily winning the opening set, Roger was up a break twice in the second set but Nishikori always managed to fight back and finally capture the set. In the decider, Roger finally had to admit defeat after 128 minutes of play.

Next up is the Davis Cup rubber in Switzerland against Kazakhstan, starting on April 4.

I must check on Italy. Fognini was a break down to British Number 2, James Wrd ..... Foza Italia!!!

Stan has said he has felt the pressure since that big win and alo expects Roger to replace him as the Swiss Number 1. I don't think he has the prowess to win more big tournaments.

Yup, the best of five sets - yawn! Unless it's Roger winning in three straight sets. I don't take to the player from Kazakhstan currently. So peely wally and unflattering outfit colours! Yuck!

That's true.
First set tiebreak!
Stan has been strangely erratic with his play since the AO.

No Shatir, not that I know of.but I think we are agreed the babies are within the next few weeks and Roger will want to be close to the hospital!

This is best of 5 sets, isn't it?
Might be a couple hours or so before we see Roger.

Stan got out of trouble in that service game.
His opponent has a pleasing style, with a single handed backhand.

Fancyfree, was there any report confirming that Mirka will give birth in April?
