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.

Some people said 'Fed regained the heart of champion'.
For me It feels quite strange. They credit In this timing? Regain?
He never lost his fire. Roger had already showed his champion spirit in his career as well. No matter how the result goes on rest of career, he is such a true champion.

What a match!!!
You played really well Roger..
Even though you haven't won a match against one of the fab four players since, beating Djokovic in 2010 basel final, i know today you can do it.
Can't wait to see you win another title.

Dear Roger,

You played a magnificant game again Del Potro on Friday - way to go!!!

All the best against Murray! I know that you are playing great and I believe that you will win the final - good luck from Canada to the best tennis player ever

Dear Rogerrrrrrrrrrrrrrr,

Sorry, I forgot to tell you something else! The Murray's game is now coming of age & Murray will probably win a Grand Slam title, but if you keep your brain working intelligently as in the match against Del Potro, you will win a lot of tournaments. Mind you, Nadal is a ferocious lion, he's as hungry as you are!!!
