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.

Hi Roger, the very best of luck for this evening's match against Andy. Hope to see lots of great strokeplay and focussed, intelligent shotmaking from both of you. Just stay calm and cool and hope very much to see you win. Lots and lots of love as always and I think the outfit you've been wearing this year is one of your best ever, very striking. GO ROGER!!!!!!!!!

You played a brilliant match against Del Potro. Congratulations ! It was like a written hollywood script to a movie with a nail-biting tie-break in the end with the hero coming back from behind to win the match. Well done. Way to hold firm with a indestructible life force that changes one's destiny.

Good luck in your match against Murray.
