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.

Dear Roger Fans,

I know that most of you are saying: "Oh, it is ok Roger", "Roger, you are human and could lose as any other player", "You will be back asap", and a lot of other sorts of good words for our Roger.

But the true is only one. Our Roger

If you can get back your exceptional physical fitness every thing will come back, the confidence, the feeling... and by the way I am sure this year you will win PARIS..., and the OLYMPICS! The year started badly but it will end brilliantly! I

Hi Roger,

Sorry to hear about your loss to Murray in Dubai. I guess 2008 has not been your year so far, but your own standards have been so ridiculously high for the past four years, that any two losses in a row seems like a slump...Well, it's either t
