Seen as though there’s nothing much to blog about, most Fed fans seem to be on a downer about Roger’s back and a few of you have asked me to do a newer version of my GIF post (I was always reluctant as we all know sequels are never as good :)) I thought I’d do a little compilation of Roger’s 2013 season so far.
It’s been a very tough year, only 1 title, some painful losses, injury concerns and a slip down the rankings. In fact you could say it’s one of his worst ever seasons to date, I’ve tried to cover every milestone so far and here’s how it’s gone down:
You’re all optimistic and excited after a great 2012
It get’s even better when Fed schools Raonic at the Australian Open
But then you’re a little deflated after the loss to Murray in 5 sets
It’s a bit of a shock when you find out Roger’s lost to Benneteau in Rotterdam
Then a loss to Berdych in Dubai hurts even more
Indian Wells, no biggie, Roger had a bad back and this is Nadal back to his best
Then he loses to Nishikori on Clay??
Oh great there’s another Fedal final on Clay in Rome that you don’t want to watch, but have to
It’s been a poor season but you gotta be optimistic for the French Open even though you know what will really happen
Then it looks like Roger’s got his season back on track in Halle
Your expectations get sky high for Wimbledon after Fed schools Hanescu
But Roger 2.0 is back wasting multiple break points against Stakhovsky
Then he misses that backhand vs. Stakhovsky match point down
And every Tennis Journo writes about the Djokovic / Murray era
Boom, you’ve been talking about Roger trying a new bigger racquet for months and he finally gets one
But then you have to try and understand the Delbonis loss in Hamburg
And then have to watch Roger leave the court in Gstaad after losing to Brands
There’s plenty Tennis on but Roger’s isn’t playing in any of the Tournament so Twitter is like
All you can look forward to is Nike bringing out yet another crappy outfit
And you’re hoping the new racquet makes a difference when Roger next plays Nadal
Whilst also hoping Roger’s in this kind of mood at the US Open
That pretty much sums up Roger’s 2013 so far for me, how was it for you?
