Roger out early in Paris

11.11.2009 | Tennis

Roger had to accept an early defeat in Paris against Julien Benneteau at the BNP Paribas Masters today: 6-3, 6-7(4), 4-6.


Roger had not dropped a set against Benneteau in their two previous meetings. He raced to the first set today, showing tennis on a high level. But the second set turned out to be less one-sided and Roger even fell back rather clearly in the tie-break. Our champ seemed a little irritated and had to save three break points early in the decider but Benetteau took advantage at the fourth attempt to edge a lead he then did not lose, finishing the match in just about two hours.


In Roger's seven visits of the tournament, his best performances remain three quarter-final rounds.
