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.

Why are Roger and Novac playing after Nadal if they had been playing before since the start of the tournament, it could turn into a big advantage for Nadal...does anybody know how this is decided?

They will be playing tomorrow for sure its nearly 5pm there, why the hell did they put Nadal on first? and start the matches so late?

Handy, laten ze jullie eerst 5 minuten inspelen, om daarna vervolgens de baan weer af te moeten, omdat het regent.And its raining softly. I do hope you get to play pretty soon. Wishing you a good and exciting match.I see there are people on court again. Hope it stays dry and hey there's even sun. Good luck rog.

That was an epic game, Rog. What a way to finish it! For a moment I was totally sure you were out of RG, but then things changed drastically and, you know, at the end it was unreal! Congrats for it.

Today, a reminder of last year's SF has been set. Same rival, same court, same tournament. It will be a really tough match, but I believe in your tennis enough to expect a great battle.

Last year the result was unbelievable. Why not repeating it today again?

Go for it, Roger. Always with u. A
