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.

You don't need luck tomorrow against Novak, you just have to play your game. I know you'll win tomorrow, I'm more concerned about Rafa in finals. There's much talk from sports pundits and commentators that they don't want to see you against Rafa and losing. I want you to prove to the World who is the Greatest Of All Time. Imagine, beating Rafa and winning you're 17 GS!!! I know you can beat Rafa, just stay relaxed, don't think too much on the court, and just it flow Roger....just let it flow.

Roger I am confident that now time has come to beat them both..first Djokovich in the semis, then Nadal in the finals....this would be a dream come true for you fans, and you will definitely enjoy it:) Am I right, champ?:)

Hi Roger. Today's game with Djoker will be very tough ... Last year you beat him because you have a good and consistent serve.. Repeat this and minimize your unforced errors and you will definately pull through !! Good Luck and god bless !!

Dear Champ, your objective is clear, defeat Djokovic. Be strong, confident, focused, take the initiative, defend your service. Your tennis is the best and can repeat the last year exploit in Roland Garros. Come on Maestro, go for more, Go, Go, Go!!!

Roger I must admit, I hadn't been as anxious as now awaiting one of your matches. Be focused and determined from the first point. Play aggressive and capitalize your chances. And please, stay mentally stable throughout the whole match.
If you play well, I'm sure you'll make it!
