Roger defeated by Ernests Gulbis

27.04.2010 | Tennis

Roger crashed out in the second round of the clay-court Rome Masters today, losing in three sets to unseeded Latvian Ernests Gulbis 2-6, 6-1, 7-5 in a match littered with unforced errors. "My game was definitely not up to speed," Roger commented. "My serve was not working at all. I hope I can come back from this. That's usually what I do after a loss like this." Roger broke twice in a one-sided opening set but Gulbis came back by converting two of five break-point chances in the second, as more and more errors showed in Roger's game. The Latvian broke twice more in the concluding set as Roger unfortunately did not find a reply to the situation and finally had to admit defeat. "He has immense power on both sides and one of the fastest serves in the game," Roger added on Gulbis. "I think he's got a great future."

Tough draw, Roger! When I saw Gulbis was up first, I knew it could mean an early end. He's a hard-hitting player one would prefer to meet in the QF, only after getting some rhythm and momentum from prior matches. You shouldn't take the loss too hard becau

I only got to watch the highlights just now. You looked great in the first set, and I don't know what happened in the 2nd set as they didn't show much of it. Then the 3rd set you weren't far off from winning. Probably just not enough matches recently.

It's okay about being defeated from Gulbis, everyone has bad and unlucky days.I think that you should be more consered from Nadal because he is playng suprisingly well, obviously what he wants is to get on the top of atp list... I'm sure you won't let him

It's very disappointing Roger that you lost the way you did. Your game is not up to the mark. Your forehand is going haywire and your serve is letting you down. Hope you bounce back in Estoril.
