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.

The result was not happy for you, still tomorrow is another day.You played very well against Rafa, so I'm sure you'll win against him next time at Roland Garros.

Good luck!

oh,Roger, I don't even expected such results about the final, that's not so good...after 2010 Australian Open, you've got almost no wins, and that makes me rather worried. but i'll support you with all my heart, just cheer up and do a good job in France a
