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.

Great Roger!!!! A perfect match against Melzer. I wish you'll do the same vs Gael in semi-finals. Good luck!!!! GO ROGER GO!!!!!!! Try to keep your fantastic service and stay concentrate. Monfils plays on his court and he'll be supported by his public so Roger pay the maximun of attention particularly to his "athletic and strange" way of play. ANYCASE YOU ARE ALWAYS THE BEST PLAYER IN THE WORLD SO I THINK THAT IT'S IS ENOUGH THAT JUST YOU PLAY YOURTENNIS!!!!! SEE YOU IN THE FINAL!!!!

During the Melzer match there was a comment that his girlfriend's helped him so much to calm down and same for Soderling. I know you, Roger, are well aware you wouldn't be where you are today without Mirka and you always acknowledge that as do your fans, but in general I'm not sure Mirka really gets enough credit for being your rock all these years.
