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.

Great match, Roger! On to the SFs vs Tsonga. You know how to beat him, as proven in all matches you played recently. By the way, I like the new outfit, esp the red jacket. Ialways said I like you in red or blue, your winningest colors. Will be watching live stream tomorrow.

Hello Roger
Congratulations on reaching the S/Fs--your movement, serving ,shot selection/placements etc always a delight to watch.
I am sorry to learn that you experienced back spasm during the past 24 hrs. We had concerns when you wrapped the towel around your waist during yesterdays match. The cold windy condtions not particualarly helpful for you.
Take great care Roger which I know you will do so --no-one knows your body better than yourself.
I will support your decision/s
