Roger Federer misses final

Roger had to accept a straight-set loss to Albert Montañes today in Estoril: 2-6, 6-7(5).

Roger clearly had trouble with the surface that was slower today due to heavy rainfall that had caused a rain delay earlier. He dropped his serve three times in the first set. The second set proved to be better but he still did not manage to break the Spaniard, taking the set into a tie-breaker. Roger then raced to a 5-2 lead with two services of his own - only for his opponent to score the next five points and thus the match.

Roger will now travel to Madrid where he will compete in the ATP 1000 tournament that starts coming Monday.
