Roger stopped in the final

12.08.2007 | Tennis

Unfortunately Roger lost his Montreal final against Novak Djokovic 7-6 (7-2), 2-6, 7-6 (7-2) on Sunday. Roger stood 4-0 career against the 20-year-old Serb coming into the contest, and had lifted Toronto trophies in 2004 and 2006. Today his 16-match win streak was ended by the strong youngster.

Roger looked to take command when he rebounded from a 0-40 deficit to win five straight points for a 6-5 lead, but Djokovic came straight back from down 0-40 and fight off six set points before tying the set on his fourth break point. The 20-year-old won the tiebreaker easily as our star continued to struggle in the wind, particularly on his cross-court shots. He was down 0-40 again four games into the second set and again battled back to win, but Rogr broke for a 4-2 lead and broke again to finish the set.

Djokovic broke back to open the third and Roger looked like he would bow out quietly, failing to win a point on the Serb's first three service games. But a run of errors let Roger break back to tie it 4-4 and set up a decisive tiebreaker. But it was once again Djokovic who dominated the tiebreaker, ending it with a drop shot followed by a lob over our former title holder that fell inside the line. Roger's attempted return through his legs struck the net.

Roger remains tied with Becker for ninth place all-time at 49 career tournament victories. He has been ranked No. 1 a record 184 consecutive weeks since 2004.

Hi people,

I just found out why.

Everyone knows guys like Joker and Rafa play their guts out on court. So see what happens at first round in Cinncy? They're out.

I've wondered why Roger seemed to be so indifferent during and after Montreal's fina

A3mulder, how right you are about Roger playing the most beautiful tennis. Watching his match tonight against Benneteau there were some simply gorgeous shots and he did a very efficient job in closing out at 6-3,6-3. What more can we ask for in our ten
