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.

That was a tough game, Roger. You weren't as inspired as the days before, but you managed to take the match and go through semis (like last year!) It was your 800th career victory, so I feel amazed for that. Congratulations, master. You are still writing pieces of history.

The semis today will be so hard. Berdych has defeated Murray and is playing pretty well so far. It's going to be a great time to show how strong you feel on court.

Good luck and play as you've been doing. Always with you.

I am nervous, this is the same as Monfils, he hits big, plays big and feeds of quick points, dont give him rythem like Murray did. He showed he has fight in him. I'd prefer this match up for you. Just don't play short learn from Cincy.
