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.

It was really great to see you back on court, you played really great in the first three matches. It is really disappointing news but we completely understand and respect your decision. It is very important to rest and take care of your back beacuse a match like this with Tsonga is a very tough one and can make your back worse.
Wise decision. Get better soon
I hope to see you healthy and in your best form at Australian Open
Good luck
Always my favorite

I just found out. I'm so sorry Roger, but I hope you can recover for the Australian Open, so it was a wise decision.

Rest and do not forget .... see you at the Australian Open.

Big hug and regards =)

Go Roger Go

Really glad you pulled out of the Doha tourney - few points to lose and absolutely no point in going on and aggravating what is a chronic area with you as so many other tennis players. Right way to go Rog! Hope it is more comfortable for you very soon. Lots and lots of love, see you in Oz. xxxxx

It makes sense if Roger has withdrawn. He needs a few days to recover from the spasm, surely. A photo of Roger just after beating Seppi - was clear he was suffering when you looked into his eyes. So good you were able to win the match in spite of pain, Roger and good luck and much love, see you at the AO.
