Early end in Dubai

03.03.2008 | Tennis

Unfortunately Roger's quest to defend his title in Dubai already came to an end today as he lost against Britain's Andy Murray 7-6(6), 3-6, 4-6. It was his first defeat in the opening round of an ATP tournament since August 2004.

 

"Normally I manage to win such matches. But not today," Roger analised. "One of the big guys had to go out. It's difficult but it could have been worse. It wasn't a bad match but that's the only positive I can take," he said. "I thought I was missing forehands by two or three metres. That's awful. You have it lined up and suddenly it's out which comes as a shock."

 

It is the second time Murray has defeated Roger, with the first in the second round of the 2006 Cincinnati tournament.

 

Next up for our champ is the NetJets Showdown against Pete Sampras next week in New York.

Just finished reading the NY Times. Now all is understood. Your fans have been bewildered by your un-Federer-like appearance and performance. Gee, we don't blame you for feeling glad you were able to make it through the AO semis. What we wonder is how

Hey Roger, bad luck. But you can still come back to win next time =]
Make him work as hard as he can and just remember why you're playing.

Dearest Roger,

I was very sorry to hear that you had been suffering with mononucleosis. It's a hard one to overcome. Do not take any chances because points are not as important as your health. It is a testament to your will power that you made it to th

I CAN'T UNDERSTAND HOW ROGER WILL PLAY

This is from NYT todays date. No wonder he looked so lethargic & tired during the AO. This all explains it. Lets hope he has got over this & can go back to his winning ways.

Considering what has happened in Dubai, I am beginning to think you are the most brilliant man to ever play the game. Right now, Djoker is completely mindf***ed after his defeat by Roddick. Losing was very smart, Roger.

See you at MSG. You should
