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 all the players on the tour would like to "suffer" anything Roger is "suffering". 15 grand slams on all surfaces, No.1 for 237 weeks consecutively and 5 years as year-end no.1, 4 Laureus awards in a row, etc, etc.

Federer has told many times that he does not
need a coach and he does not work on his
weakenesses and when he goes to play
a match he has does not use tactics
but plays instinctive.
To make a story short:
He that will

Why don't you just keep your mouth shut and mind your own business if all you want is to discourage Roger?

Who the hell do you think you are to critisize Roger like THAT?
Have you ever played international tennis yourself?
Can you ever even DREAM of doing all the things Roger has done so far?
