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.

That was inspiring Roger! What a comeback in the second set TB. It was great to see.
Congrats for playing so well this week, and now is the time to claim for the title, a year later.
I feel really confident about you, since you have played so dominant and regular along the entire tournament. It'd be simply awesome seeing you rising the big boat of the trophy once again. Wish u all the best against Andy, and hopefully, you can manage to win.

Make us enjoy, Roger. Always with you. Come on!

It is said that Murry is riding on the waves and it will be tough match.
I do not know which is which will win.
But I hope just you get back the ship on sand..

It was a nice game to watch (against HMdP). IWhen I saw yuo down 5:0 in second tie break, I still was hoping that you can get back. The mind set was tiugh and this is exactly what happened. I am worry though. Too many unforced errors. No conversions of break points. You could win much easier. But, it is aleays easy to critisize... Good luck today! Baeat Murray, I know you can and you will. BTW, will be waiting for your game in NY im Madison Square garden!

Congrats Roger!! you have to keep that mental force, as you had in the 2nd set, to reach this title. I'm sure if you keep that fortress you will reach your goals.... GO ROGER!!!!

Hello Roger,

It was to be expected that this match would be closer than the finals in Rotterdam, but the overall picture seems the same. You were never really in danger until that tiebreak 2nd set, that you managed to pull out of a hole. Excellent match, highly entertaining, showing once again that you are in excellent shape, playing superbe tennis and showing great confidence. Murray will be another challenge and I wish you all the very best best for today's match.
