Roger's Run in Paris Ends
November 3, 2018 -- Paris, France In a thrilling Quarterfinal matchup at the Rolex Paris Masters, Roger took the court against the always tough Novak Djokovic in hopes of getting one step closer to his 100th title. The Serbian stepped onto the court with 21 straight wins under his belt as he put the pressure on Roger right from the start blasting back answers for every shot the Swiss number 2 player had. Djokovic beat Roger in a thrilling 3rd set 7-6(6), 5-7, 7-6(3) and will return to the top spot on the ATP Rankings for the first time in two years. Unfortunately, based on points, it does not look like Roger will be able to take the number 1 spot as the 2018 season comes to a close. Roger will be competing at the Nitto ATP Finals which take place in London next week. He is in the Lleyton Hewitt group along with Kevin Anderson, Kei Nishikori and Dominic Thiem. Play begins on November 11th and Roger will face Kei Nishikori in his first match.
