Hmmm are we a bit off topic here
Guess we should transform that into "excuses why Roger lost". And yes I agree every given statement other than "Roger lost becouse his opponent was the better player that day" will sound like a bitter excuse as we are so spoiled by him winning that much. (That's from a fans point of view - a non fan might be pissed by it
) And when he loses once in a while we kind of are hmmm speachless and have a hard time to explain to ourselfs why he lost. As for the AO Semi Roger should have won that match already before having that matchpoint - he should have served it home beeing up 5:2 in the tb but he didn't couse Marat had something against it
(And yes I do beliefe that he might have had these blisters that hindered him to move around like he usually does and that might have caused him the match that's my excuse why he lost that match :P :P :P) But still having discussions about it won't change the outcome of that match...
...and yes I'm looking forward to the clay season as well and keep the fingers crossed that Roger will do fine.
