French Open Final!

03.06.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger showed a brilliant display in the semi-final of the French Open today, ending Novak Djokovic's winning run with a 7-6,(5), 6-3, 3-6, 7-6(5) victory and setting up a meeting with Rafael Nadal in the final.

"I've trained a lot during my whole life for these kinds of matches," Roger said. "There was an enormous amount of pressure on Novak and he really played well."

Roger had an answer to just about everything Djokovic showed on court today, even though cumulating 46 unforced errors on the way, five more than his opponent. After taking the first set in a tiebreaker, Roger managed an early break in the second and brought home the set smoothly. Djokovic came back in the third set as Roger also committed too many errors. Just like the opening set, the fourth was a tough fight with breaks on both sides, ending in a tiebreaker. That proved another immensely tight fight, but Roger eventually rode home the victory with his 18th ace.

Our champ will now face Rafael Nadal on Sunday in the final of the 2011 French Open in what promises to be another classic duel between the two players. It is the fourth time in six years that the two meet in the Paris final.

Dear NOCHWEITERFEDERER or anyone else who knows of this, could you please provide a link to the article by Lynne Barber on Nadal or else let me know how I could get a copy, since I tried the Sunday Times website and you have to subscribe which would seem a bit strange for just the one article.

solo tu potevi fermare djockovic e nessun altro.hai tanto ancora da dare al tennis ed ai tuoi tifosi.Sei e sarai sempre il giocatore più forte della storia del tennis.
un misto di eleganza precisone mai visto prima.
nadal?anche se la classifica dice un altra cosa è e sarà l eterno secondo(se non terzo).

Re roger il problema con nadal è il rovescio.la sua palla ha un rimbalso molto alto e questo ti obbliga spesso a giocare un tennis di difesa in quel tipo di situazione.durante la finale ho visto che ad un certo punto che hai iniziato a giocare la smorzata quando ti faceva giocare un rovescio esasperatamente alto, ed ha funzionato.non so se puo essere la soluzione.sei di gran lunga piu forte di lui percio devi solo sbloccarti mentalmente hai battutto djockovic questo non è un caso.

roger,you gave us an awesome semi! you proved that you can still do what you want to do when you really focus on the match.
as for final,maybe you got nervous when you came to the 9th game which was serving for the set.
people need good luck sometimes ,right?

best wishes to you and your family.

I have been following your career since you were that impatient child who was a sore hothead when you lost a match. :) I have to say I have been most proud of your performances on Friday and then again on Sunday. You played so well! Congratulations on the last two matches of the French open 2011! I hope to see you in a lot more tournaments. Your tennis playing is so fluid! You literally look like poetry in motion when you play. Keep up the good work, train hard and play your best evey time!
