Roger loses semi

Roger was defeated for the second time in his 14th match against Nikolay Davydenko. He lost 4-6, 4-6 to the Russian in Doha today.

Roger fell back right in the beginning as Davydenko jumped to a 3-0 lead. Our champ did manage a re-break but that was not quite enough to catch up. Roger saw good chances for an early lead with a break in the second set which he unfortunately did not seize. Davydenko scored the break to head the second set 2-1 and eventually win the set as well as the match.

Roger was also defeated in the semi-finals in Doha last year, having played Andy Murray.

Next up is the Australian Open in Melbourne which starts on January 18th.
