Roger in semis

15.06.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger won his quarter final against Milos Roanic 6-7(4), 6-4, 7-6(3) today to book his spot in the semi-finals in Halle.

"It was a great match on a high level and I am glad that it worked out so well" said Roger.

Roanic's strong serves - 220 km/h - were a tough weapon for Roger to battle against. But Roger did so very well, not facing a single break-ball during the entire match. The Canadian simply had that extra bit of luck in the tie-break of the first set. In the second, Roger stayed focused to secure the only break of the match. In the final set, our champ then made sure to score enough mini-breaks in the tie-break to convert his second match-ball for a spot in the semis.

Next up is Mikhail Youzhny (ATP 31). Roger leads the head-to-head 12-0.

Congratulations on your win against Raonic!!! Excellent match, really glad you were able to break his serve in the 2nd set then clinch the tie breaker!!! Your stats were good too, keeping down your unforced errors and not getting your serve broken!
Keep it up!!!
Good luck in the semis tomorrow!!!

Whoa, this has already been such a good tournament to watch and now we have 2 semi finals featuring four of the best single-handed backhands in the game today - how rare is that????? I like all the players in contention but of course will be cheering for TMF as usual. GO ROGER!!!!! (love and hugs as usual) xxxxx

Great effort, Roger. Milos is a tough competitor. I hope that he is on the same side of the draw as Nadal at Wimbledon. I think that Rafa would have a tough time with this Canadian who is clearly on the way up. Onve you get back to at least #2 in the ATP rankings, there is a chance that Nadal and Djokovic could be placed on the same side of the draw.
