Another defeat by Murray

22.03.2009 | Tennis

Roger lost his semifinal against Andy Murray 3-6, 6-4, 1-6 in Indian Wells on Saturday.


Both players agreed that it was one of their toughest matches so far. For a few minutes shy of two hours, Roger had been outplayed. He had to face a strong performance by the Scotsman but also a large number of errors on his own side: 32 unforced errors in total, 17 in the first set alone. In the middle of the third set, after Murray took a spill at the baseline, Roger seemed to make a charge. Unfortunately he then lost three straight points off of his backhand giving Murray a 4-1 lead and again committing an unusual amount of errors.


"I played a shocking third set," Roger said. "It was one of those matches where it was very up and down from both ends and today the better player won."


Roger will be back on court very soon, with the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami starting on Monday.

Dear Roger,

This is a Chinese saying.
It means one can be strong if he keeps
his mind simply.

Simple is the best.
Don't think too much.
Just keep going.

When you'e down and troubled
And you need some helping hands
And nothing, nothing is going right
Close your eyes and think of us
You know we are always there
To brighten up even your darkest night

Winter, spring and summer or fall
All you have to

I agree with you. Roger has been blessed with the baby. He will see things different when we carry his baby for first time.

I am confident Roger will have a positive change and his game will comeback.

Hello to everybody. Stop pu

I just read another article on www.goroger.net (under ‘Articles’) as well: ‘Fatherhood and the Fed, a heady Mix’. It describes almost exactly how I feel about Roger’s coming fatherhood. It will take away the pressure and as we all know that helps a lot. Y

Dear Roger
There is no use saying 'you are the best player ever seen'. It's OK, you have been the best and you are extremely good But when? When you PLAY, and not STOP playing during the match! It will cost you (unfortunately it has happened several tim
