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.

Please Rog break right now !!!!!!!!If Malisse will serve like in the last game on his own serve will be almost impossible for Fed to break.

Will Roger muster just enough strength to break Xavier now? I don't know if I can sit for another set. Go Roger go!

Ignore *Rogerpeter32*: only comes on site to have a dig, or when he's lost a tourney; he's a real know nothing. And talk about stating the bleedin obvious....

There was a person on this site who said that if Roger wins his opening game in every set he will win it.And that is right.

It looks like he won't break.I'm almost sure that there will be a 4th set.

Roger needs to pay attention at every points in the next games.

This Malisse plays now with much more confidence.
