Not a good start

10.11.2008 | Tennis

Roger did not catch a good start at the Masters Cup today, losing 6-4, 4-6, 3-6 to France's Gilles Simon in his first round-robin match.

 

Our champ was sublime in the opening set but lost his way in the next two as Simon took control. Simon, who got his ticket for the season finale when world number one Rafael Nadal withdrew injured, targeted our top seed's backhand with his powerful groundstrokes and sealed his reward with an ace after just over two hours. It was Roger's 14th defeat - and second to Simon - this season. A year ago, Roger faced the same scenario, facing a defeat against Fernando Gonzalez, but then came back to clinch his second consecutive title and fourth overall.

 

In the second match of the day Andy Murray plays Andy Roddick.

Bravo, Roger!

Rogerholics, Koenig and Goodall said that Rog was in third place in the red group behind Furry and poussin-- does that make any sense or am I missing something?

Rog lost in three sets to Simon, won in two against the Worm. Simon lost

Hi Fans,

Whew! Nice win. I think this is Roger playing his way into the tournament. Makes sense, given lack of practice due to his tender back. Looking good.

Despite the break of Roger's serve in the next to last game, Rudolph announced Roger

BRAVO, ROGER!!!!

You made it a little tougher than it should have been, but triumphed in the end.

I had to watch live scores for the last three games.

It will be tough against Furry, but playing against Steps may be good for you. He usually disr
