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.

Pienso que a veces el tenis no hace justicia a quien juega mejor un torneo, con variedad de golpes, efectos, y cambios de ritmo, solo basta comparar los números de Roger contra los de Rafa. 2 momentos importantes que hubieran cambiado la historia de este match. El primero estando 5-2 y ad arriba para llevarse el set y no concretar el break y luego con su juego no metió ni un solo primer servicio. El segundo en el 4to set arranca 0-40 y no concreta el quiebre. El que no hace le hacen, no perdone

I still feel that the Rogi's match against Nole was equivalent to a final. He played in effect 2 finals with just a day in between. That is some doing for anyone and Rogi made a very good stab at it. He showed brilliance through out the 2 weeks and also how fit and strong he is. Of course I am sad like he must be, but I am certainly not complaining, we are very lucky we have him to watch and support.

Hello Roger,

Congratulations on your fabulous win against Novak. It was a joy to watch.

I have yet to watch the finals, but I know the results. The score speaks volumes about your will to remain atop the ATP rankings and be the best tennis player that is within you. That is what is so appreciated.

Good luck in your next match in Halle.

Roger it hurts to see you lose, but I know you did your best and I love your artistry in tennis....indeed your raquet is a wand and you cast a spell when you play...and that's why for me you're the greatest of all time.
