Roger out in Madrid

18.10.2008 | Tennis

Roger lost to Andy Murray in semifinal in Madrid today. The Scot took revenge for his defeat in the US Open final in September: 3-6, 6-3, 7-5.

 

“I think he's improved at his pace,” Roger said. “First he had to grow up a little bit, become a man; I think he's taken that step well and he seems much more relaxed on the court which I think helps him. He's still fiery, which he's supposed to be. I just think you've got to give the young guys time to learn. It's so much more fun to see them learning.”

 

Roger sealed the first set after a break in the fourth game. It was the first set that Murray had to drop in the tournament so far. Murray responded and clearly took the second set 6-3. In the decider the Scot sent down 10 aces and despite Roger saving six break points, his opponent broke in game 11 and served it out to 7-5.

 

Roger is now off to Basel where he has announced that he will be competing next week.

My Dear Roger,

I am glad that you were able to get to the semis as you did. You had a very tough draw. Stepanek, Del Potro and Tsonga. These were not easy opponents. But you put them away. Murray took his chances and won on the day. But all this for me

Dear Roger,
It's sad that you weren't able to make your way to the finals! I hope you're well enough to carry on with other tournaments cuz you told that you were weary and wanted to take some time of, that surely didn't mean to skip just one tournament!
