Roger defeated in epic final

01.02.2009 | Tennis

Roger had to put on hold his quest to match Pete Sampras with 14 Grand Slam singles titles today. He was defeated by Rafael Nadal in another epic five-set final 5-7, 6-3, 6-7(3), 6-3, 2-6.

 

After 4 hours and 23 minutes on court Roger could not hold back his tears during the prize ceremony, showing how much this title would have meant to him. Our star was trying to equal Pete Sampras' record 14 major titles but has now lost to Nadal the last three times they've met in Grand Slam finals.

Well,
That was hard, right?

Hi Roger
I have been reading some of the letters that your fans posted. You are well loved, and I agree with people that say you have to start believing in yourself again. You know you are the best, you just need to feel it in your heart again. For us yo
