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.

And Nadal's body would have taken the strain from the consec finals, so he won't be feeling good even though he won. Focussing on the positives and feeling good about it brings about more of it. So today I liked the dropshots, low slices, forehand attacking shots and net play at times. Rest well, for on grass, the ball will not bounce above shoulder height, you will have no problems winning hence.

It really irritates me that you lose these matches to Nadal simply because he has a clearer gameplan. It may not be in your nature, but you should methodically attack Nadal's backhand.

Nadal purposely leaves some opening at his forehand side to lure you to attack it, and you take the bait time and time again and consequently keep losing these matches.

I really believe you can beat Nadal by methodically attacking his backhand, but you seem to be more afraid of his backhand than his forehand

Roger handed this to him on a silver platter (or whateever the trophy is made of). Roger should have won in straight sets. How do you lose that first set!!!!!

Nadal will have a least 20 grand slams, Fed no more slams.

Very disappointing,, he has no heart anymore.

Congratulations Roger! I know you lost, but I dare say you are only getting better on clay...you pushed Rafa harder than at any other time and it's because you're still improving your game!! I'm sorry you didn't get to take the big trophy home (what's up with that dinky serving tray? shame on the French) but you will have another day. Cheering you all the way champ!!

Federer will always be at the top of the list of 'Grandslam titles.' So worrying about that is a waste of energy. Federer will add another few grandslam titles if he plays like today but at the other three slams. If I think this and the commentator and his partner, then why argue and fight. Belief for Federer will be very high as he turned around the 2008 humiliation into a 2011 loss but a fighting one. Got to be happy with that and the outlook for the rest of the year and beyond.

Wimbledon is next month. If Nadal wins, its gonna be a tennis disaster. Djokovic will most likely play Roger in another grand slam semifinal and then what happens?
