Roger faces clear defeat

08.06.2008 | Tennis

Roger's quest for a career Grand Slam was again stopped by Rafael Nadal today. The Spaniard showed an extremely strong performance, leaving no doubt who was to take home the title: 1-6, 3-6, 0-6 was the final score.


"I would like to have won more than four games but Rafa has played an incredible tournament and he fully deserves to win," Roger said. "But I'll be back to try again next year and I am looking forward to the rest of this year."


Our star did not find any answers to Rafa's play today. His opponent has probably never played better, although Roger also commited a large number of unforced errors, 35 in total - compared to 31 winners. Nadal had 46 winners – many of them backhands of astonishing pace and accuracy – and made just seven errors. "Rafael was very, very strong," Roger said afterward. "I have to forget this now, look forward and hope for the second half of the year".


And there is plenty to look forward to, indeed. Wimbledon starts in just two weeks time where Roger acts as the defending five-time champion and later he'll go to New York in August trying to win the U.S. for the fifth year in a row.

I wish you good luck in finding your

I am just wondering the kind of hypocrisy that is floating around Fedex’s humiliating, devastating, debilitating, horrendous (whatever superlatives our esteemed journalists are using) loss to “clay court king” Rafael Na

it was the one of the worst days of my life having to see you lose that way, but its true that despite the fact that i hate nadal`s game, its undeniable that his backhand is a lot better than last year and this result was predictable in a certain way. Any
