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.

Few world champions in any individual sport have managed to dominate the opposition season after season with such power and artistry like Roger Federer.

When I watch Roger at his absolute best, my mind wanders and I think this surely must be the defini

Hello Mridul 1

I , plus many,many others whole heartedly agree with you. For me it was so sad that Roger, was unfortunately diagnosed with mono during 2008 which undoubtedly would have been his 'golden year'.
However, he has shown what a great champi

I agree with all your post and the post of so many persons you mentioned therein. I see so many positive things in Federer even after he went through the suffering the effect of mono. If not for that debilitating malaise, he would have alre
