Roger out in Miami

04.04.2008 | Tennis

Roger lost his quarter-final against American Andy Roddick 6-7, 6-4, 3-6 at the Miami Open.

 

It is the only the second defeat for our star in 17 career meetings against Roddick."I always said it's tough to play against Andy, you know, with that serve," said Roger, who was beaten with 17 aces. "He's always going to have a chance. That's why I'm quite amazed about my record against him."

 

"I think I did well to hang in there," Roger further commented. "Maybe this is one of the matches I should have won against him because he's had some other ones where I think he was supposed to win. This time around it went his way."

 

Roger had won the last 11 encounters with Andy Roddick, the head-to-head is now at 15-2. Roger will be heading back to Europe these days and is looking forward to the Estoril Open in Portugal and the start of the clay season.

My dear Roger the Great,

You played some spectacular tennis against Andy Roddick, I am so sorry that you lost the match mainly because one service break at a very crucial time in the final set. Otherwise it was a very entertaining match. Actually I a

TonyN,

Thanks once more for your posts. I agree 100% that Roger deserves at least, at the very least, the benefit of the doubt. I had posted the same opinion in a preceding page. Your demonstration with historic facts makes the point very convincing

At last someone is talking sense and supplying interesting evidence that many of the previous tennis greats had low patches in their careers, but still came back to win again!

Thank you TonyN for your informative postings....hope everyone reads them.
