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.

now what?
if you keep going your own way then you keep losing in the semis.
i do not know if mcenroe's offer was "serious", but if he or someone else could add just 5 or 10 % plus to your game, most probably it would be enough. i am sure that accepting

I'm sorry for the bad news. My deepest sympathy for you, my friend. I hope your melancholy will end soon. However, everyone in his life would come across situation like this. You know, you lose some and win some just like Roger's matches.
