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.

Hey Roger

I was gutted, but i'm a fan in the good times and the bad. Will root for you always. Your draw was tough and Murray went on to win the cup. Best of luck in Basel where all of us will be behind you 100%

Hi Roger

You played well... but still it breaks my heart to see you lost the game. Semis is not too bad so I am sure you will come back stronger in the next tournament.

We will support you in every way. Good luck.

Hi dear roger,
I had watched your match. U played well. Andy Murry played one of his match, esp. his serve in the 2nd and 3rd set. I was damn sure that u will win but it didnt go your way. He palyed well but your first serve and unforced error cost y

Hello Roger,

I felt sad not able to watch the last 3 games of your match because the channel switched it to football..But I've seen the replays. It's sad of course not being able to equal last year's feat to reach at least the semis..but still you did

It's not only you who lost the final but also Nadal.
You've done very well.
Take Care
