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."

~brian999666~ Wonderful post on page 15.

It's easy for most to focus on Roger's losses and to forget the incredible success he's had over the past years.

I personally believe there is still much fire in Roger's spirit. Win or lose I support Ro

Fed was just joking, he was being sarcastic as usual. The Master has a great sense of humor. That media are a joke and show them all right. Roger will win when it really matters-the Grand Slams. And I am sure he'll get HIS no1 ranking back. I loved watchi

Hello Roger,
It's a pity you lost this first match, but Andy was very good today! And Rafa Nadal has also lost again Murray! Nevermind, it's only an exhibition match and I 'm sure that you will win the first interesting match in Doha!
Good luck and I ho

Dear Roger, and ***To Fans Who Think That Nadal Is In His head--and now he shouldn't allow Murray to get there: this is wrong! I never ever believed or even considered that Nadal was, or will be, or could be, in Roger's head! Never mind Murray! There is s

Actually Roger is the real threat to all players
in the ATP, that's why all the guys are so eager
to beat him. I don't care too much that Roger
sometimes loses to some players in some best
of 3 matches, these stuff are for women and not for the men. W
