Roger defeated in final Roger was again unable to stop Novak Djokovic in Indian Wells. The two players showed some amazing... Roger lost the opening set after dropping his serve once and things didn't look too good in the second set as he was broken again to fall back 2-4. Unfortunately his serve did not work as well as it had in the previous rounds. But Roger made a great comeback as he managed to break Djokovic on his fifth breakpoint to then level at 4-4. In the tie-breaker Djokovic was just two points away from the title on his own serve. But just then his nerves seemed to flatter and he produced two double faults so Roger could level in sets. In the third, Roger fell behind once more, trailing 0-2 but found his way right back to go 2-2. But from then on Djokovic proved the more constant player, leaving no more games to Roger who eventually had to admit his second defeat of the season after 2h 17 of play.

Roger will now take a break, skipping the Masters 1000 tournament in Miami, preparing for the clay season. ]]>

Roger in the final against Djokovic Roger played a solid match against Milos Raonic. After winning 7-5 and 6-4, he goes...
Both players held serve through to the end of the opening set, when Roger managed to secure several break-points at 5-5 and converted the fourth of these to later serve out the set. Taking the energy into the following set, he broke Raonic right away to take a 1-0 lead. Thanks to his excellent serves he only faced one break-point himself for the rest of the match, fighting it off and keeping the lead to eventually book a spot in his sixth Indian Wells final.

So in a remake of last year's final, Roger will be playing Novak Djokovic again. Last year Novak Djokovic lifted the trophy after a tough 3-6, 6-3, 7-6(3) victory.]]>
