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.

Keep in your mind , that the most important part is not be the object. The really important part is the process that send you to the goal and your fight has been an example of this.

Congratulations Roger on winning in view of the problems with your back. Comms were very puzzled by your apparent struggle with the match and felt you may not be well, so clearly they were right. Hope you will be fine v Tsonga. Will be with you all the way tomorrow. Good Luck & Love you!!!
