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.

from 3-2 up Roger has played poorly Novak is 29-0 after winning the first set this year :/ Shades of Rome guys. I'm sorry to say but I am just going to try enjoy watching the way he plays because I stick firmly to the belief he will not win another major because of moments like at 3-2 :/

Umm not a bad match, gave that break back a little easily but who knows. But Novak is serving well now and Roger is not a dangerous returner.
