Roger survives massive |scare

29.06.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger defeated France's Julien Benneteau in a thrilling match 4-6, 6-7(3), 6-2, 7-6(6) and 6-1 today and thus making his way into the second week at Wimbledon. 

 

After dropping the opening set, Roger was not able to make use of three set points in set number two, eventually losing the tie-break clearly. But he then started to find his way into the match a lot better, taking the third set with ease. The fourth set, again, went into a tiebreaker, where our champ won the first point. Both players traded points from there until they reached 6-6 for Benneteau to then hit a return long - and Roger finally closing out the set. 

Benneteau seemed too exhausted in the final set, receiving treatment on his legs twice. Roger, on the other hand, showed some more terrific tennis to continue his journey for a seventh Wimbledon title.

Congratulations. What a brave lion you are Roger. You were clearly in a lot of pain and movement was difficult. I really felt for you. It must have been very difficult everytime you reached and bent for the ball, let alone run for it. It was a relief when you won the match and you could go of court. Go and get plenty of rest and good treatment, it would be so sad if an injury prevents you from winning this week and maybe threaten your Olympic dreams. Today was a good win!

OMFG Roger, I think your forehand and your serve should be held as the worlds new great wonders, on top of that you played that well while injured, hopefully you get better for wednesday since a though match is ahaed. Even though most of the big names have been left on the way I Beleive that everyone is aiming at your number since beating you is a life staple. Keep on firing like you did today in the second and most of the fourth set, always cheering, Miguel Rajlin.
