Roger defeated in final

20.04.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger was defeated by fellow Swiss Stanislas Wawrinka 6-4, 6-7(5), 2-6 in today's final in Monte Carlo.

 

Roger started well, taking the first set. Stan gained momentum in the second set and as they went into the tie-breaker Roger's opponent had a strong phase to win the set. Roger fell two breaks behind to trail 0-4 in the decider and was finally defeated after two hours and 13 minutes of play. The 38 errors on Roger's end were simply too many, compared with the 21 winners.

So sad that Roger didn't win today but he did not play as well as when he played Novak and I think losing the first point in the tie break didn't help his cause and let's face it 38 errors is too many. However despite losing he played some wonderful shots the like of which only he can play and even when he was behind he continued to battle and still managed to get another game. At the end he congratulated Stan and smiled, he probably knew he hadn't played his best and you can't win them all.

Break points do seem to be a problem for Roger. They have been for a long time but that game against Tsonga was a classic example. It really is quite weird. He puts in an awful lot of work to create the opportunity and then let's them go.
I do not know how his team can go about sorting that one. It is almost has if he puts too much pressure on himself to finish the job and as a result does not take his time to continue the job accurately. Over to Luthi and Edberg!

So very sad you failed again to win MC, dear Roger, but perhaps you'll return next year for another try? I like I think many do feel that since you couldn't win, it was fitting that your team-mate and compatriot and friend Stan Wawrinka won. How good for dear Stan to win his first Masters 1000. Much love as always to you and your dear family.

I would rather have Stan win than any of the other top players and youngsters. He might prevent Roger from winning the occasional trophy, I doubt very often, but he is 29 years old and only just beginning to win things. So I am happy for him that he is having some success at long last, he deserves it and RF with be the first to say so. He is in no position to endanger any of Rogers records but he might just help prevent Nadal or Djokovic from taking some of Rogers records from him. Hugs 2 Rog x

by the way I agree with Boting, BREAK POINTs have been the achilles hold for Roger.... it's true that if he does NOT CONVERT THEM, he will reduce greatly his chances... not everything is bad, it seems Roger is stronger mentally which is extremely important... specially for GS titles...
