Semis against Djokovic

09.09.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger reached his eighth consecutive US Open semi-final by beating Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-4, 6-3, 6-3 last night in a match delayed about 90 minutes by rain in the first set. He will now meet world number one, Novak Djokovic, in Saturday's semi-final.

Roger's main two weapons in the night session were his serve (72 percent of first serves in) and his game at the net. "I played great," he said. "I'm very happy with the way I'm playing, the way I'm moving and I'm enjoying myself on the court."
Roger showed a terrific match, even thoug at 2-2 in the third set, Tsonga got a chance to break. But Roger saved that when Tsonga sent a lob wide. From there, Roger was at his best, broking in the next-to-last game when Tsonga double-faulted.

Now our champ faces top-seeded Novak Djokovic in the US Open semi-finals, the fourth straight year they will face off in New York. Roger holds a 3-1 edge. In their most recent head-to-head meeting, in this year's French Open semi-finals, Roger ended Djokovic's 43-match winning streak.

BOTING....ok, maybe he is, maybe he will retire a period, maybe he wants to make something, this is his decision, I don't know, but to sugest him to retire it is too much. As from my point of view, I want him to play until the last drop of blood and this loss will make him to take a decision because is too painfull for him, is better for him loosing like this than like in AO.

Because he cannot win the tight ones anymore and being the GOAT, you are living under your real potential. Roger please get some help in order to get your mental game back to where it was before Nadal appeared.

Fans in the good weather only!

He should have won. He didn't. Everyone especially Roger is disappointed but seriously he was so so close .... Why should he retire?

As I see in this site from "fans", they are writing on this site more when Federer is loosing than when he is wining.

I'm sure u did ur best, but for the 2nd time we all have to learn a lesson, after winning the 1st 2 sets, it's not over, there's always hope to come back. I'm glad u didn't lose points in this tournament and hope this doesn't affect u in shanghai. I definitely can feel the pain you're suffering from right now, but what can i say, that's tennis. However if we look at the +ve side; you were so close to world no 1 and maybe better so if you didn't win 2day, you'll triumph another day.
Good Luck.

Yeah yeah same story that we keep hearing since AO 2010, it used to be true "a bad day in the office" that was our justification, but those days are coming more and more often. And I think that a great player should retire while being great, can you imagine how painful it would for Roger losing to a player outside the top 5? But Roger doesn't have to retire if he can get his head fixed (and properly) he can still win, the talent is definitely there the mental toughness not...

For those who are saying to retire: this decision should be taken only by Federer, so do not write imperative to Federer. You can only go away from suporting Federer and it is simple, you can suport Djokovic or the player who is number one on that time, it is free to do that.... so, how to say nice?? FUCK OFF all of you.

Of course I was shocked I can't believe what happened but I was shocked more when those who called them your fans insult you
they can't understand that you did your best and you are amazing.. you are 30 years old and you performed fantastic against 24 years old kjokovic. You did all the best in all history and they can't forgive you in such a match you played great. It is just not your day. You are the best ever and we don't need anything but watching you playing, this is the real joy. love you
