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."

Year 2009, probably another year for Federer's fans.

"Hopefully I can just have another terrible year with only just the one grand slam and that will be just fine." Watching the match of Murry v Nadal, probably your words do come true.

Murry, equi

Don’t worry boy, you just have to be focused in the four individual slam, The GRAN SLAM. Go and get them ALL.

Just finished reading THE ROGER FEDERER STORY by Rene Stauffer. I enjoyed getting to know our champion's "back story." Can't wait for Davis Cup in Birmingham, Alabama, in March!
