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.

Roger, you lost, but you will ALWAYS be back. That is why you're a champion; you fall and get back up stronger! Best of luck in the future, Roger. Your tennis is superb and you're a pleasure to watch.

Please gracefully RETIRE

I'm just sure of 2 things. 1- Tennis is a crazy game, 2- Federer wants to kill us :) However, to all the angry fans,
Please stop insulting Federer, we're all angry and miserable for his loss but no one has the right to insult him or ask him to retire as we all know that if Federer retires, this will leave us with the ugly brutish baseline game. So keep on moving champ, your game is fabulous but to be honest it's time to fix the mental side.
Your fan forever.

Real,but a Real Federer Fan never says bad words about their hero.Never curses. Just support him and be happy when he wins.Don't you ever think that the most dissappointed person is Federer himself!.Don't you ever think that he wanted to win this match muchmore than any of us?!.So keep quiet and hang your heads down.You have not the slightest right to curse him.Otherwise just do not say that you are his fan.Federer,we still love you even if you miss two match points and loose.Thank you forever.

FEDERER HAD IT IS IN OWN HANDS BUT HE BUSTED IT BECAUSE OF HIS
LAPSES IN MATCHES WHICH ARE DEADLY WHEN HE PLAYS AGAINST
PLAYERS LIKE NADAL,DJOKOVIC AND MURRAY......HE WILL DROP ON THE ATP
