Roger stunned by Davydenko

28.11.2009 | Tennis

Roger suffered a 2-6, 6-4, 5-7 defeat to Nikolay Davydenko in today's semi-final at the ATP World Tour Finals.

 

Roger had never lost against the Russian in their 12 previous matches. But number 13 proved unlucky for our champ today. After having won the title at the Finals four times in five attempts between 2003 and 2007, his quest was stopped in the semi-final this year.

 

Davydenko produced a strong performance, taking a fast lead in the first set, breaking Roger's serve twice in the first five games, as Roger struggled to find his best form. But our number one recovered in the second set to level the match and take it into a decider. Tied at 5-5 in the final set, the Russian managed to hold Roger's high level and scored a break in the very last moment. Roger came close in the last game when he fought back to 30:30 from 0:30, but Davydenko eventually battled through his final service game to win the match.

I think, the best chance for Roger to surpass Pete Sampras 286 weeks on top is to work hard, focus, play well and win tournaments (AO and 5 ATP 1000 series matches, FO and Wimbledon. Once that is acheived he will be the GOAT - and it will be very difficul

Better late than never - and whether you read this or not, I'd just like to say a big thank you for hitting that wristband to me after the end of the Muray match. It was such a sweet gesture and so totally unexpected by me ... hence why I r

Hey Roger!

Congrats on fabulous year - for me, it was after the French Open I stopped "worrying" about you, and then with Wimbledon, well I couldn't ask for more.

Thanks for being so cool, and maintaining an ability to laugh at yourself too - it's q

Dear fellow fans,

Just a simple question:I wonder why some people keep posting the same posts many times. Isn't once just enough?

Thank you!
