Roger loses first match

02.01.2009 | Tennis

Andy Murray has beaten Roger 4-6, 6-2, 7-6(6) to reach the final of the World Tennis Championship in Abu Dhabi. Roger won the first set but Murray bounced back to complete the victory and set up a final against Nikolay Davydenko or Rafael Nadal.

"It's been a great start but unfortunately I couldn't come through in the end," said Roger. "But Andy's had a fantastic end to the year and he looks in great shape again."

Roger was happy to get a hard match at the start of his season and, despite last year not being his best, he would take the same again for 2009. "Hopefully I can just have another terrible year with only just the one grand slam and that will be just fine."

Roger, happy New Year.
Thios is just the start of the season. You had a good match work out. Now concentrate on the Aussie open. I am confidant you will take it.
Also red seems to be your lucky colour please stay with it. Black is for mourning.!! te
