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.

Dear Roger,

Sorry about your loss, though in the grand scheme of things, you did reach two successive hard court 1000 series semifinals. You are by far the most complete player and Iwould dearly love to see you try full time serve volleying like Sampr

As I posted after the AO final "Are we expecting too much from Roger ? Last year following his diagnosis of the debilitating illness of mono, we had hoped that he would do well.
He won the USO, he, plus his fans were elated Then the back

Hey Gaga,

Thanks for reposting fedfunny's Ten Commandments. You know, I've actually printed it out and posted it up next to my computer so that I can have a good laugh everytime I read it.

Fedfanny, I hope there's no copyright issue with this.
