Semis against Tsonga

05.01.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger celebrated a 20th successive win today, reaching the semi-final in Doha for the sixth time. His 6-3, 5-7, 6-4 victory over Andreas Seppi earned him a next meeting with Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

"I am looking forward to playing him again," Roger said. "I hope it will be a good season for both of us. He's always a nice guy to see play, and a nice guy off the court as well, so I hope we can live up to expectations."

Roger did not show a too constant performance today, especially in the second set. He was trailing 1-5 when he still managed to come back to 5-5 - and still lose the set. But he recovered in the deciding set, breaking Seppi early and holding the advantage until the end.
Roger profited from excellent first serves and passages today - making a total of 41 unforced errors on the other hand.

Roger: I am so sad because you have to quit to Qatar. I hope you will be full recover to the Australian. Please, take care of you. I really look forward to seeing you playing again as healthy as always.

That was unfortunate Roger, to have to pull out, but absolutely the right decision.
You have a remarkable fitness record, only twice in all your career have you had to pull out, it barely sounds possible! Take a good rest and mend your back. We want a fit and healthy Roger to watch. I hope to see you better for Aussie Open. Take care!
