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.

Ciao Mario,
very good points you raised. Nadal is not difficult to defeat if Team Fed understand anything about tactics. Pete Sampras wanted to win Roland Garros "on my own terms", he said. Did he? why not? He did not want to change his playing style to
