Against Murray, Roddick and Simon

05.11.2008 | Tennis

Roger is the top seed at the Masters Cup in Shanghai in the absence of Rafael Nadal, who had to withdraw due to a knee injury. Roger will face Andy Murray (GBR), Andy Roddick (USA) and Gilles Simon (FRA) in the red group.

 

Gilles Simon was the last player to make the Masters, taking advantage of Nadal's withdrawal. Roger clearly leads the head-to-head against Andy Roddick (ATP 6) 15-2, with the American winning their last match in Miami, though. Andy Murray (ATP 4) caused Roger quite some problems this year as he defeated our star two out of three times (Dubai and Madrid). The most important match - the final of the US Open - clearly went to Roger. The head-to-head is 2-3 in favour of Murray. Roger has played Gilles Simon (ATP 9) once (Toronto, last July), facing a defeat.

 

The Masters starts on the hard court of the Qi Zhong arena on Sunday, with the final - to be contested over three sets rather than five - on November 16. Roger holds a total of four Masters Cup titles and has played five finals in series.

 

Red group

Roger Federer (SUI/1)

Andy Murray (GBR/3)

Andy Roddick (USA/5)

Gilles Simon (FRA/8)

 

Gold group

Novak Djokovic (SER/2)

Nikolai Dawydenko (RUS/4)

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (FRA/6)

Juan Martin Del Potro (ARG/7)

Tilou,

I am not ready to watch Roger's defeats. If you are that's ok, but I am not. Here is what happened today, another Roger defeat. If you can watch this and say that everything is ok, you are a hypocrite.

With respect,
Cesar

Roger,

Amazing. 0x40 and you missed all 3 break points in such an important moment. It is not the real Roger Federer, the one that make the difference when it really matters.

I am still here watching your match, but seems that you are not in your hi
