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.

I'm watching this on red button - unbelievable that they're showing two women's matches on BBC1 & 2 - I'm lucky not to be working today, but for those who are and put the tape on, they will have missed first set at least...and the drama. BBC ARE CRAP!

He had 3 days and he didn't recovered. The rain won't help him. Only God and his miracle.

Roger will win this set and perhaps rain will come and he will get some medical time. There's still hope out there for our Roger people.
