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.

The site is red again ... keep that burning colour in your eyes for in this part of the season is when we expect most from you. No matter how strong Nadal or others are on this surface, it's a battle of wills, step up your fighting attitude and just win.

makomni, handan08 thanks for tips about saved matches :) That was a very good match. How on earth Roger didn't won that match? It was a pity that Roger didn't respond to that break point in third set. But you have to give credit Andy for not succumbing.

Roger...a page out of N. Davydenko's book...He won the Sony Ericcson men's final.In spite of the gambling soup he is in...he stayed focussed .I am sure Roger...you have the same thought going on in your mind...Once you bounce back from the health issues &

I think that people have gotten used to Roger Federer winning so much, which is not bad, but it is not good. Because now, every time Roger looses (which isn't a lot), people think something is wrong wrong with him or he is worsening. When really, it is go

Man sollte der traurigen wahrheit ins auge schauen
Roger wird seine Nr1 position noch vor roland garros an nadal abgeben. Der wiederum wird

Aber das ist egal Roger bleibt derselbe charmant, bescheiden und

**Federfanatic, re your post about a "mad" comment that Fed marry Mirka, which then ended by suggesting that he should dump her.
I very much suspect that it was a Djokovic fan. They tend to make comments like that, and worse. Indeed, they seem to be te
