Roger soars into semis

22.11.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger showed a master class performance today to defeat Rafael Nadal 6-3, 6-0 at the ATP World Tour Finals.

Roger outclassed Nadal thanks to a highly concentrated performance, showing his full repertoire in front of a thrilled crowd. The match started with both players holding serve - until Roger seemed in a world of his own after taking a 4-2 lead with a break. He had almost 90% of his first serves in in the first set! Roger showed no mercy in the second set, breaking Nadal three times and sealing his victory after precisely one hour.

 

Thanks to his victories against Tsonga and Nadal, Roger has secured place 1 or 2 in Group B and thus a spot in the semi-finals. He can play Thursday's match against Mardy Fish without any pressure.

I think SFs will be Ferrer-Nadal, Federer-Djokovic, wanted Djoker to face Nadal in semi but looks like that's not possible now. Rob (atp commentator) said Ferrer was going to struggle this year with the draw and he's not lost a set yet. Awesome that both groups have a must-win game because it adds to the excitement/ tension.

You are THE BEST of the best, Roger. This was a brilliant Master Class and a delight to behold. God gave you talents and you worked, and continue to work, to bring them to fruition. May we learn from you in our spheres. kt

Hey Champ, it was a terrific win against Nadal. But let's stay focused on the upcoming matches. Continue the steamroll until you lift the trophy.

Great Roger!

I started developing that nice feeling you will win this tournament :-)
But also, that you will carry the momentum in the next year(s), and will get more majors.

Good Luck, Health and Happiness!

Simi.

This is as close to perfection as we have ever seen ANYONE play. And Nadal didn't play poorly. This is what YOU can do at your best and it is over-the-top dazzling brilliance. We have watched it three times now because it goes so fast that one wants to relish some of the most spectacularly shots you pulled off. Your easy power was stunning! So much for your backhand being a weakness....In answer to the commentator who asked if you had ever bagled Nadal before, yes, on clay in Hamburg in 2007.

Keep it up Roger. You are playing some awesome tennis. It must be tough going against the top 8 in the world. Play your match against Marty. You can rack up another 2 sets.
