Quarters in Paris

03.06.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger came from a set down to beat "Lucky Loser" David Goffin (ATP 109) 5-7, 7-5, 6-2, 6-4 in the round of the last 16 at the French Open today.

"David has played an extraordinary tournament," Roger said in an interview after the match. "I congratulate him from the bottom of my heart."

Roger had a rough start into the match as the youngster played fresh and confident to take the first set. Roger only managed his first break towards the end of the second set, levelling in sets and giving our champ some room. Roger then found his rhythm and was not in any further trouble from there on.
 
Roger will now either meet Juan Martin del Potro (ATP 9) or Tomas Berdych (ATP 7) in the quarter-finals.

IT would only be fair...

COME ON ROGER, JUST CATCH THE BEGINNING OF THE SET!

That being said, Roger just took the third set by a double break. Let's just wait and see how much he has left... I would only be fair if he is the one to come back from two sets down after having had to endure that twice himself (Tsonga Wimbledon, Djokovic US Open).

So Roger and Djoko are now at the same position - 1:2 .

Who wins points? Nadal can't, Djokovic will lose as well if he loses versus Tsonga, Murray will lose against Ferrer who is the only one who will win points. And Delpo is too far away. True, Roger would lose 840 points but he has only a Wimbledon QF from last year whereas Nadal and Djokovic were both in the finals. It's not that big a deal...

By the way, Tsonga has just won the third set. Can Djokovic turn it around again? I wonder...

No you will loose a lot of points and the opponents win a lot

Now you play like roger federer

It's just not your tournament this year. Doesn't matter. I still hope you can turn it around, though. But if you don't, just focus on the grass season and play your best tennis there :)
