Too bad, Roger

Posted in sports, tennis at 9:53 am by danvk

Nadal played well in the French Open final, but Roger mostly beat himself. The key statistic: Federer won on only one out of 16 break point chances. Ten of those were in the first set, which he really should have won. Roger must be all kinds of pissed. He refused post-match interviews.

With three convincing losses to Rafa in the last three French Opens, you’ve got to wonder whether Roger can ever pull it off.

In other, unrelated sports news, congrats to the Rice Owls on making the College World Series again. I regret not going to Omaha to cheer them a year ago. Hopefully they can do it this time!

    Yeah, I agree–I thought John McEnroe was being tough but fair when he said that the “window was closing” for Federer with Nadal only 21.
