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.

It seems that we have nothing else to do just to comment Roger's play and his approach to it.
Thereturnoftheking is right-Roger doesn't read this fortunately, of course! How many coaches are there on this site? What advice? It is pity saying that Roger

How do you think like this? It's full of negativity, your comments will not help Roger! You dare to predict the comming season! And the way you do that is awful! I don't have much time to lose answering such foolishness, but ple
