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.
