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.

Thank you, Mitz -- how kind of you! Well, of course I don't really KNOW what is going on with Roger -- no one but Roger knows that. But when you are 60 like I am and looking back at age 27 for yourself and then your own children, you realize that the mo

Dear Roger-
I have been looking at video after video on youtube of you. Of course, there are thousands, it seems, of you from the early days till the present day. Watching your beautiful form is so inspiring for everyone who loves tennis. It makes one

Normally I ignore you, eeee, but what a terrible thing to say about the earthquake! People died there! To make a joke about it and insult Roger in the process was not funny at all. I seem to recall that your idol Rafa wasn't the picture of calm and coo

LynneDanley****Beautiful and thoughtful post. I wish more of them were like yours-so sensible in so many ways. We can't help loving "our" Roger and he means so much to us each individually that it is hard to see him in the shape he is in. If there were ma

Fans of Roger: I just received my copy of The Tennis Magazine. It is dated May 2009. After I read the article on page 24 written by a man named L. Jon Wertheim under the caption "MY POINT", I thought to myself that every one of Roger's true fans need to r

Roger is facing a real crisis of confidence. I think we should support him and we cannot compare noone to him.He is unique.
