Quite a comeback

12.11.2006 | Tennis

Roger dropped the first set but won 10 of the last 11 games today to begin his Masters Cup campaign over holder David Nalbandian 3-6, 6-1, 6-1.

 

"I had to make him hit some errors - he wasn't doing that at the beginning," Roger commented. He lost his serve three times in a shaky opening set at the Qi Zhong stadium before throttling up his level in dramatic fashion. Ending the year atop the rankings for a third consecutive season, our star broke to start the second set against the Argentine who beat him in five sets at the season wrapup a year ago.

 

Roger  stormed to victory in one hour, 27 minutes, notching nine aces and 30 winners. It was Roger's 13th victory in only his fifth appearance at the Tennis Masters Cup.

Dear Roger,

Great win. Somehow Nalbandian contrives (once again) to let his opponent back into the match. As they say Nalby's problem is between the ears. Once you were holding serve in set 2, he went to jelly.

Now comes Roddick. As usual, his backh

Very Proud of you ! From the pics gathered here I sense that you had a frustrating 1set and once more you have had to fight all personal demons, insecurity and self doubt. You are continuing to grow as a matured and capable person ready to face any storm
