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.

Remember that extra 1percent Feds! Don't be passive against the Djoker. Let him feel the roaring passion and the heat and steely glare from your side of the court! The very very best of luck!

This is kind of a lose lose situation for Roger beat Djokovic and he loses to Nadal, lose to Djokovic and thats another major lose :/ good luck for today but us fans should not expect him to win the tournament lets just hope the great Roger Federer has one or two great last matches.

Hi Rog.
I hope there is a way to explaine to us what hapened in the first two sets with Delpo it's simply not you who and for the first time I saw you so nurvice.
For today match, get your first serve and get as much as more of aces and be as much as you can agrasive. don't show him any murcy because he's Djokovic and you know what does that meen don't beleve any of his moves even if he shows that he can't even walk don't beleive him just be agrasive and replay 2011 match.
God bless you love
