Roger battles into final

02.03.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger fought a thrilling battle against Juan Martin Del Potro today to finally defeat the Argentinian 7-6(5), 7-6(6) and book a spot in the Dubai final.

“I hung in there and I thought I played a good match,” said Roger. “He almost pulled the first set tie-breaker back from 2-6, and there was little between us tonight. I just fought well and got a little lucky."

Roger is the only player not to drop his serve this week, and he also remains indomitable on serve because he did not face a single break point. Both sets went into tie-breaks and in the second set Del Potro had a 5-0 lead. But Roger fought back and had a stunning comeback which helped him turn the score around and also win the second set.

Our champ will now play Andy Murray in tomorrow's final. The Scotsman beat Novak Djokovic earlier today.
