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.

Dear Roger,
It's always a pleasure to see you play whether you win or lose; however, when you win I feel like I won and when you lose I have to take a lot of crap from my brother who's a Nadal fan. I don't mean to be presumptuous to think I know you or

Nadal is not super-human...not even on clay.Roger, look at what Tsonga did to him at the Australian and yes with the right strategies the same can be done at Roland Garros.If you try to battle him from the baseline shot for shot..he will win without fail.

Hi Rog,

I know your tough. Please don't let the media get into your head. It's just funny how media commented Nadal trashed you. They are just excited to see you fall down. Anyway, at the end of the day i think you are still the best person above them

Roger,
When you are in the WImbledon final, you should give RAFA a punishment. Just like what he did to you.
