Roger reaches semis

12.11.2010 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger has reached the semi-finals of the Masters in Paris-Bercy for the first in his career thanks to a 6-1, 7-6(4) victory against Jürgen Melzer today.

Roger showed another terrific display, racing to a 3-0 lead in the first set and wrapping it up in a quarter of an hour. Melzer improved on his serve in the second set, taking it into a tie-break after no breaks on both sides. Roger had to recover from trailing 3-4, but scored 4 points in a row and thus securing his spot in the round of the last four. Roger had 18 aces and 33 winners overall today.

The victory also means that Roger will hold the number two ranking until the end of 2010. He will now play Gaël Monfils in Saturday's semi-finals.

Set 3: At the beginning everything went in the best way. The whole match was in your hands and it was really you playing on the court in Roger's style , but then don't know what happened to you. You missed 5 match points.
No matter what you'll always have my support. It's just that i wanted to know what were those changes that were happening all the time.
Good luck in London and please try not to be nervous because that's not you.

When Gael saved the first two match points, I knew that it was not to be your win. And after that the errors were bad. But when you get to the ball and then still hit it long after that, you know that whatever you do will not be good enough. Like England soccer team in a world cup penalty shoot out or John Terry taking the deciding penalty in the Champions League. You still showed some great touches though. Last tournament of the year is where you will come good.

I have so much to say about today's match Roger! It doesn't matter that you lost, i mean you lost today , but you'll win tomorrow, but the thing that was so confusing and surprising and strange was you.
Set 1: You were definitely not in a good mood and you were so nervous (don't know why) and you were arguing so much with the referee!
Set 2: Hmmm... better than the first set, and the real Roger was coming back and he finally came. You were playing very well and just getting better.
