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.

Roger,

ALL the "Greats" go thru slumps.
Ali, Sampras, Woods, Navratilova, Graf.
I still believe you're the GREATEST!
Keep your head up, stay confident & remember who you are.

Bad luck. I actually commend your courage. I do not think it is possible to play at that level for lesser players following very recent mononeucleosis

Zing,
I am not sure if I am remembering well, but I thought they were thinking of doing another exhibition in December. I was hoping it would not materialize, one way or another. But before Wimbledon! I sure hope that's not going to happen! Roger's s
