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.

Roger, tough go... it's pretty obvious you still are having trouble finding the answers to Nadal's weapons. You said last year that 08' would be difficult... almost prophetic. What will you do if you don't win Wimbledon or the USOpen this year?

Cmon Roger, I know that you're the nº1. You must trust in your skills and that's it. And now, let's break all the records and be champion in Wimbledon for the sixth time. I know you can do it, and you know it too

Go Roger.
Clay is boring. Have fun. Play your best on grass. Good lucky.

Hye Roger,

I feel disapointing for you and I do not understand why you said that you had positive feelings after Roland Garros. You lost like never before, you abandonned the fight so quick. You need now a coach which can help you to solve your mental

I want to wish you very best of luck on grass courts and put my point of view on your defeat.
Now this may be far fetched but I have my own theory behind your loses.
OK it was clear to everyone that Nadal on clay moves ten times better than enyone else

Dear Roger,
Don't take notice of the media! They really have short memories and never doubt the fact that YOU'RE THE BEST. Just look ahead of you since there are still so many things that you can accomplished and it is the best way to show that YOU ARE T

I think as Rogersome months ago didn't announce his mono illness because he's a so classy and fairy athlete... so he doesn't speak of his today difficulties, but it's so clear he's still not at his top and has to full recover from mono..
