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.

Dear Roger
Thank you for your win yesterday, especially if we know your back hurts! If you decide to play today be patient, please. Your health is the most important! You know it for sure! And your opponent, Tsonga, is a tough, very good player.
Wish you all the best and good luck dearest Roger!
Go, Roger, goooooooooooooo!
Love, Mimi

Rog, don't play today if your back still hurts. Pls think of Aussie open. Love you

Iam very nervous about that :(

This was a wierd match, Roger. You looked pretty confident but a bit unfocused as well. That's not good news, but you eventually managed to defeat Seppi.
Today will be such a different game. Tsonga is a great player and he won't give you many chances. However, you proved to be in good shape, physically strong and mentally prepared. I hope you can show you are ready to face the new season!
Good luck against Jo and wish I can see you tomorrow in the final. All the best, champ.
Come on!

Well done Roger. Thanks for the wonderful match despite the challenges that you are rumoured to be having. You are a role model and the best player of all times. You play even when yo are not 100% Whichever way the semis turn, its ok. We love you and will always support you at all times. You have nothing to prove, just enjoy playing.
But be fine for the AO, so do take care of yourself.
Praying for you now, with love
