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.

The odds for our Champ vs Djoker are: 2.5/1.53, Roger is classified as outsider. Come on Roger, break their eye-glasses by outclassing Djoker.

Dear Roger,
This is going to be sleepless night for me. I have just checked weather in Paris, 70% chance for rain. Slow court, not good. Let it rain tomorrow and you can play Saturday, sunny no rain. Dry court, fast conditions, Novak has no chance.
Do it fast, like you beat Rafa in Indian Wells, no mercy, just do it. Take the court for yourself, make him run, you have some much experience. You can do it.

Our Beloved Tennis Hero Roger,
You are the one that make me watch back tennis after Edberg & Becker era is over, you have bring the tennis to the next level, you are the most versatile player ever play in the game. We all will pray for you & hope god will bless you for what you have done on and off the court over the years. Hope this will motivate you to beat Djokovic today semi finals match up. Djokovic is arrogant & hate to see him dancing after he beat you on last year US open semi final. W
