Roger battles back to reach semis

18.04.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger came back from one set down at the Monte Carlo Masters today to defeat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 2-6, 7-6(6), 6-1 and book a spot in the semis. It was our champ's 950th career victory.

Roger struggled in the opening set as he dropped his serve and clearly lost the set. Play in the second set was more even, eventually going into a tie-break where Roger just managed to fight off Tsonga's strong shots and capture the set. An early break in the decider gave Roger a real boost, with our champ going all the way, only leaving Tsonga one single game.

Roger will next face either defending champion Novak Djokovic or Guillermo Garcia-Lopez for a place in the final.

Awesome comeback and a great win! Good luck vs. Djoker. I am hoping that it is an all Swiss final and you winning the trophy!

Nadal is out and he is such a whiner! I am doubtful he is going to win the FO this year.

Congratulations Roger! You settled my nerves with this great win, which almost slipped away from you in the second set. You will obviously have to be at your best 2morro to beat Djokovic. I wish you the best of luck against him. With Nadal out, this is your chance to get to the final and bid for the title, which has eluded you for somtime. Goodluck!
