800th victory!

11.11.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger has reached the semi-finals of the Masters in Paris-Bercy for the second time in his career thanks to a 6-3, 7-5 victory against Juan Monaco today - and has clocked up his 800th career victory on the ATP tour.

"I struggled a bit today, I didn't play as well as I did in New York," Roger said afterwards. "I served really well and once you zone in it's really hard to get you out of it."

Roger didn't have a good start when Monaco grabbed an early break in the third game. But Roger soon found his rhythm, captured two breaks and clearly ended the first set 6-3. There was a chance for Monaco to level at the end of the second set, pushing Roger to deuce at 5-4, but our champ held on and served out the win with an ace.

Roger will now face Tomas Berdych (ATP 6) in Saturday's semis. Berdych had eliminated Andy Murray earlier today.

I reckon he looks good in any color. However, I'm certain that it was the man not the color worn or luck!
