Final number 99!

12.11.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger has reached the final of the Paris Masters for the first time in his career after a 6-4, 6-3 win over Tomas Berdych today.

After losing 3 of the last 4 encounters against Berdych, Roger left no doubts about his form today. He dropped just 10 points on his own serve, getting off to a brilliant start with stunning winners to break Berdych's serve and open a 2-0 lead. He then kept his aggressive opponent at bay with solid tennis and easily wrapped up the opening set. He broke again in the first game of the second set and never looked back, not facing a single break point in an 80-minute masterclass, which was completed with another break of Berdych's serve.

Roger will now play the winner of the other semi-final between Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and John Isner on Sunday. A win would be just the second time for Roger to lift the trophy in Paris - his only triumph so far is at Roland Garros at the French Open in 2009.

Hello Roger,

Unfortunately I could only watch the recording of the match, knowing the final score beforehand, and not the live broadcasting, but the match was still spectacular to watch. I envy all those who were there in le Palais des Sports in Bercy yesterday afternoon. And judging from their reaction (standing ovation) you even impressed your own team with your performance. Congratulations on making it to the final.

To be continued...

Hello Roger
Thank you for a briliant match of tennis from the first point to the last--your whole game was SO sublime .you demolished Tomas .
Your serve, aggressive F/Hs and the variety of B/H shots had to be seen to be believed.
Wishing you all of the very best for your 1st Paris Masters Final

Kindest regards
Margaret
