Roger defeated in final

16.05.2010 | Tennis

Roger was unable to defend his Madrid title today. In a remake of last year's final, Roger was defeated in straight sets 4-6, 6-7(5) by Rafael Nadal this time.

Both players dropped serve early in the first set before Nadal broke to lead 4-3 and went on to bring the set home, even though Roger had quite a few chances of swinging it around. In the second set, Nadal claimed a tightly contested tiebreaker after two breaks of serve each. All in all, Roger even scored one more point than Rafa (46:45), but was not at his best during the critical phases of the match, simply committing too many errors. 

But our champ certainly showed that he is more than ready for the French Open which starts May 25.

Not so bad. You were able to break Rafa's serve and you had opportunities too. After some fine tuning and more matches on clay, you definitely has a chance to defeat Rafa.
