I can't believe how easily he capitulated after fighting so hard for the decider.

Sigh.

Just not good enough tonight. 60 percent serving wasn't going to cut it. Did enough on Murray's serve, too many UE's on his own serve, didn't do well enough there.

Disappointing. Had his chances - but never really gave himself an opportunity to win here.

I mean I feel like he never had it. I mean -- two five-set matches with no serve. Ten aces in 2 five-setters, I mean... it's unheard of.

He's not a servebot, but he needs free points on serve.

Don't worry Roger, more slams are coming your way! His game wasn't clicking at all, and he still made it to the 5th set. What a warrior!

probably his back hurting? First set he was hitting very soft, almost reminded me when he played malisse in wimbledon.

Disappointing for sure, but still - thanks for the entertainment, Roger! I'm proud of how he played this tournament. Nothing came his way for free, but still he hung in there and found himself in the deciding set in the SF in his second worst slam. That is definitely something.
