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.

Agree with you 100%. This is a lose-lose situation for Roger. We will all be sad if he loses to Djokovic. If he beats Djokovic, Nadal's 11 Grand Slam is guaranteed.

Let's not kid ourselves. Chance of our champ getting 3 sets from Nadal on clay is ZERO.

Nadal is especially enjoying his RIDICULOUS draw like always. He has not faced one tough big-hitting opponent (Berdych, Del Potro, Isner, etc.).

Release the real tiger inside you and let Novak tastes your Roger’s magical best. Be aggressive to take a lead. Stay cool and focus, dear, and employ your precise serves & wide stokes to outbalanced him.
Just do it, Roger. Just beat Nole!

My dearest Fed,
Thank you for your victory over Juan. Joker is not in good form, he escaped two defeats at the hands of Seppi & Tsonga.He is lucky to survive. But be careful and play your best with lots of patience, self belief and courage. You can definitely emerge a victor. Many players are faking injuries, yet they are playing well. So don't believe anybody, don't get disturbed by anything. May God bless you to the very core. All the very best to you. God speed.
Yours lovingly,
