Roger in semis after |five-set thriller

05.06.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger came back from two sets down to win his quarter-final match against Juan Martin Del Porto 3-6, 6-7(4), 6-2, 6-0, 6-3 today to reach his record-tying 31st Grand Slam semi-final.

"I knew Juan Martin's knee was bothering him and was trying to finish the rallies quickly," said Roger. "I knew it would be a big fight today."

Roger did not seem in form in the opening set, simply committing too many errors. In the second set, he found into the game but eventually dropped the set in the tie-breaker (4-7). Then, he shifted another gear and started the third set with an early break when Del Potro double-faulted. After that, del Potro seemed to be struggling with a knee injury, his ability to move becoming gradually worse. Roger later converted his second match ball after 3:14 hours secure a spot in the semis - where he will play Novak Djokovic.

Roger still play just for tennis. It's simple as that.
I his way of being, to live, to breathe.

Roger i am soooo sad , i thought that you would win the match because novak is not playing good enough & i am sure that he will lose in the final .
I just wanted you to win to gain points to be number one again because you are the only one who deserves this record , please try hard to get it u still have the chance , do it pleaseeee
Now forget the french open and prepare yourself for wimbledon

What have I done to you ADI ? I am just realistic and I am sad just as you are. And to RULOS: Roger is not playing to win masters tournaments. In this stage of career, only winning GS matters to him. For his standards this is bad. You will see how he will be dissapointed.

Maybe the previous match took its toll on you. Anyway, Djoker has a better chance of beating Nadal (mentally). I didn't want Nadal to beat you and have to watch you cry again. Nadal has to be beaten or he will catch your slams record.
You have a chance a Halle.

But then again, semis is not a bad spot to be into, we just want more as you want too, I still believe that. You wil succeed somehow this year I hope , wimbledon, us open, olympic and yet again london finals. Ooh Roger, we are sad with you too....
Take a rest and train well again and find yourself again, superstrong, you still have it
Roger forever
