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 am sorry to see all the bickering and ugly posts here on Roger's site. If he did read any of these I can't imagine what he would think. We are all supposed to be his loyal fans and simply come on here to encourage him and tell him that we think so much

Hi Roger,
Good luck for the second half of the year, I'm looking forward to it. You know, whatever you win, however long you hold the #1 position, it just won't be enough for some...

Sorry about Sunday, but, you've already done so much - in so many

Boting,

I don't care whether you are a die-hard fan or just love his game, I can't make you like one player over other, but the least you can do is show some respect when talking to other people posting here, got it?

Dear Roger,
GOOD LUCK in Halle and Wimbledon.
You are favourite there, so GO FOR IT!
By winning them you'll be seen as the best ever, with 3 FO finals in your pocket too.
You are the boss there, show that to everybody!

And having said that, Boting has a point in that we should try to keep the messages in other languages to a decent minimum, just out of respect to the other posters here, but the are simply better ways to say it... See how easy is to be polite?
