Roger battles into semis

22.10.2010 | Tennis

Roger recovered from a rough start today to beat Swiss compatriot Stanislas Wawrinka 2-6, 6-3, 6-2 at the Stockholm Open. His 50th victory this year also means he will now play his tenth semi-final of the season.

 

Wawrinka had a terrific start as Roger had to face breaks in the first and fifth games making some uncharacteristic errors. Trailing 0-2 in the second set, Roger came back in terrific fashion with some great winners to break Wawrinka twice and take the match into the third set. Our champ then raised the level of play even further to bring the match to a clear end after 107 minutes.

 

Next up is Croatia's Ivan Ljubicic (ATP 17) on Saturday.

Stop it already 'theluckyfed' why are you always so negative during the matches? The match has just started. You always do this. Then if Roger wins you become very quiet. Always predicting disaster. How does that help?

Too bad now it is 5-3 Ljubicic.

Brilliant combination Roger!! love the easy way you played that volley, so relaxed!!

OK I sense Roger is coming back into the game now. I don't see him breathing heavily either. It seems hot in there though, maybe the heating is on too high with the cold weather outside. Ljubicic is sweating already too.

I've seen Ljubicic start off strong with that serve but make his own share of unforced errors. Come on Roger!!

Lost opportunity, darn it. Ljubicic ahead 4-2 now. Blast.
