Back-to-back loss

28.03.2007 | Tennis

"I was in total control after I broke back in the first set. I'm happy with my level of play but disappointed to lose. He's improved and tightened up his game. I couldn't put him away, unfortunately." These were Roger’s words after the second defeat against Agrentina’s Guillermo Canas: 6-7 (2), 6-2, 6-7 (5) this season, at the Miami Masters.

 

Looking well in control, our number one began the third set with a break but lost it for 3-all. When the set went to a tiebreaker, Canas rose to the occasion. Roger saved one match point before Canas sent an ace past to win. Having come closer this time, but converting only a quarter of his 16 break points and committing more than 50 unforced errors, Roger saw himself in front of a hard task. It is only the fifth time in his career that he has lost back-to-back to the same player.

 

"I didn't think about it," Roger said of his Indian Wells loss. "I knew this match would be totally different. I expected myself to win tonight. It's one of those matches I should have never lost."

 

Next up is the start of the clay season with Monte Carlo in mid-April.

Hey, Roger! I agree with one of ur fan's statement,"You lost to yourself". Your preparation for Miami and Indian wells was not at all enough, boy!!! You have to know that slow ad steady wins the race, don't just jump after matches. If you do it with passi

The good thing about a BACK-TO-BACK loss is getting about 600 posts which are the proof of the esteem of your fans towards you. Paternal fans who either console, encourage, give advise, or even admonish, but who really are concerned about you and (as pare

I saw u play canas in two matches. He seems has a very good spinning backhand but when he hit, I didn't like spinning. It is the same as his forehand. He hide them. But i think your next challenge on clay gonna be small but aggressive youngster....jokovic

Hi Roger,
We all (including Canas) know who is The world number one.Next time when you play to him,don`t give him a set(only 1 or 2 games).
Wish you very successful clay court season and of course Roland Garros title.Good Luck Roger.

My dear Roger the great,

I am really shocked about your back to back loss to the same player, who I don’t think is capable of beating you. I understand the fact that nobody can win all the time, not even the best. But your these two loses are very un
