Still waiting for first 2008 title

23.03.2008 | Tennis

Roger had to end his run for another title in Indian Wells today after losing to American Mardy Fish 6-3, 6-2 in the semi-final of the Pacific Life Open.

 

Roger fell behind 0-3 after only 15 minutes against Fish - who had entered the tournament thanks to a wild-card. 15 unforced errors made our star's life everything than easy in the first set and he only saw one break-ball during the entire match - compared to 7 by Fish.

 

Roger came to the court 5-0 in the series and having lost one set out of a dozen played against the American. Our number one still has to wait for his first title this year.

Fish will play Sunday's final against Novak Djokovic, who clearly beat Rafael Nadal in the semis.

Dear fans:

Please read Albat's posting about mono. I wish you could give Roger a break.

Are you a fortune teller or something? I couldn't say your fiction is in very good taste.

Hi Roger,

I had mixed feelings after your loss to Fish,1) happy you gained points 2) sad you lost 3) there is Miami to see you play.

Now I know why people lost interest in tennis when their idols retire, to me Roger, tennis is boring without you; I

TonyN, Bubut, and others. Thanks for your great posts. I'm sure Roger knows exactly what he's about, when he'll be fit enough and when to peak.
Getting over Mono is not easy - especially for top athletes.
May God continue to bless our boy. He is such a

As a physician, I am quite impressed that Roger performed so well following an EBV infection! This form of viral infection usually puts patients out for at least 6 to 8 weeks! Give the man a break and encourage him on.

I agree with you guys. It was disappointing and painful to watch, Roger couldn't even move his feet. But I have faith in you, Roger, and I know the best is yet to come. Your fans are still with you and best proof is that the number of fans registered has

Beginning of year 2008 said that Roger career is in decline. Maybe because of his illness, maybe because he is getting old and he is not so fast enough, maybe for some other reason. This is how it goes in sport and life. Younger players are always coming.
