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.

Too bad, but I think Roger should be a bit more realistic when it comes to the clay surface. 2009 was lucky and that's it.
Rafa is back and no way is he going to go away. I think Roger should finally accept everything about this. The press will contin

Roger, you're the best. I liked the way you played. With some bit of confidence, I bet you would have defeated Nadal yesterday. If you had taken the match to the third set, you would have gained more confidence and won the match. Ooooffff that band bound

Whenever it's a close match against Nadal, Federer just can't seem to win it. It's almost automatic. I kept wanting Roger to break him so that he could run away with it. Instead, many opportunities were missed and I knew Nadal would squeak it ou

I dont like this!
What your traing to do wich so many drop shots in those decisive moments of the game?
Traine your backhand in line, like Guga... this can be the key for wining!
Your service devolutions of second "easy" Nadal serves are really

very tight match. you played well. I believe you have the game to win in clay court. Your game is the best in fast courts but i think you have done tremendous in executing and adjusting your game in clay. all the best in French!
