Back to number two!

15.08.2010 | Tennis

Roger booked his spot in the final of the Rogers Cup in Toronto with a 6-1, 3-6, 7-5 victory over Novak Djokovic on Saturday night - meaning that Roger will move back up to number two in the world rankings already.

 

"Tonight I came out with all guns blazing," Roger commented. "I played fantastic in the first set but in the second set Novak was able to raise his game and make it super competitive so I feel very happy to have come through."

 

Our champ needed under half an hour to secure the first set and continued in the same fashion, winning the next two games as well. But then Djokovic had a strong phase, when Roger had to face breaks and the loss of the second set. But he entered the deciding set clearly focused and jumped to a 4-1 lead - only for the Serb to come back to 4-4. But Roger was convinced not to let this one slip away, scoring a last break in just the right moment with a forehand by Djokovic that landed in the net.

 

With the win, Roger regained the No. 2 seed he lost following Wimbledon with Djokovic dropping back down to No. 3. He will now play the final in Toronto against Andy Murray, who owns a slight 6-5 edge in career matches between the two, but the last three have all gone Roger's way.

Yeah, I know that some courts have roofs, but I think every single tennis court should have a roof. Apparently, it's a big problem. Tennis players are not machines and they can't play like that. We also don't have a roof here in Paris at R

I thought you played a good match overall and you stuck in there when Novak started to take it to you.
