Roger breezes into semis

18.05.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger powered past Andreas Seppi today, winning the quarter-final in Rome 6-1, 6-2.

Roger ended the crowd favourite's dream run to the quarter finals with a superb display. It took him just 19 minutes to take the opening set. Seppi started the second set stronger but Roger continued to dominate play and had no problems wrapping up the match thanks to a total of 25 winners and 4 breaks. He won 81% of the points on his first serve, proving he is in great shape.

Roger set up a semi-final encounter with Novak Djokovic. It is the first time that the two meet since their epic encounter last year at the US Open.

Just hoping for the silver lining for tonight's cloud - that Novak beats Nadal tomorrow so that Roger is ranked No.2 at Roland Garros which is far more important in the long term. Hope the loss of first serves isn't indicative of something grim in Roger's physical status (as it was in Doha against Seppi this year prior to withdrawing). Anyway TMF you've had a great week and get ready for the French tournament. Lots and lots of love to, your family and team. GO ROGER!! xxxx

Good effort at the end Rogi, you showed a bit of fight. Shame you could not quite pull it off. Beat him at Wimby and the Olympics and I will be happy, those are the important ones. Better luck next time!

Very bad game with a lot of errors, this should not be playing against Djokovic!

Boting...why you always write when Federer is losing? Give him a break and give us a break, don't enter anymore on this site! Where do you belong?

You saved the first matchpoint way too good. Good tennis in Rome. Would have been great to see your in the finals .. but still there are too many major events waiting this summer... Relax Take Care and get ready for the next!!
You are always the best and No.1 to me!!
Take Care Roger
