Out in the semis

04.04.2009 | Tennis

Roger was knocked out of the Sony Ericsson Open semifinals by No. 3 Novak Djokovic 6-3, 2-6, 3-6 on Friday afternoon.

 

After winning the first set comfortably against an error-prone Djokovic in just 25 minutes, Roger unfortunately faded badly in the second. Under windy conditions, our Swiss won just 57 percent of first serve points in the second and it got worse in the third as Djokovic broke at the first attempt.

 

" I definitely struggled with my timing," Roger explained after the match. "You kind of try hard, and then it's just not

working. Today it is different just because there's so much wind. Once you start feeling bad, it's kind of tough to regroup."

 

In the third set, although Roger won two games in a row from 4-0 down, Djokovic finished the match and could capture his third win in 10 attempts against Roger.

 

Roger now heads to Europe to play the next tournaments on clay.

I am so sorry to learn that your mother has passed away--how sad for you,your family and frinds. My sympathy to you all.
Memories of the ones that we have loved,
Still cast their gentle glow
To grace our days
And light our paths

Watching you play against Djokovic really was distressing. Smashing the racket was one thing but throwing the bottles at the ball boys was quite another. I think you know it is not acceptable under any circumstances. I hope it is a one off.
