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.

Roger,
Luckily your number one rank is not up for grabs at Indian Wells. Take the opportunity to increase your ranking points as you have very few points to defend.
You need to be more agressive on court. Mix up your return especially on the backhand
