Final in Wimbledon

06.07.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger won his semi-final against Novak Djokovic 6-3, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3 today to book his spot in Sunday's final.

"I'm obviously ecstatic, I'm so happy," Roger said after the match. "I played a great match. It's been a tough tournament for me but I was able to play some fantastic tennis today. I thought Novak also played well. The first two sets went by so quickly but then I was able to step it up a bit. Maybe I got a bit lucky because he also had break points in the third set but it feels great to be in the Wimbledon final."

Roger made a perfect start and never gave Djokovic the chance to take a lead. He won the first set thanks to a break at 4-2. Even though Djokovic recovered in the second, Roger was able to fight off a break at 4-4 in the third set - and was unstoppable after that. Our champ made use of his first match-ball to seal the victory after just over two hours of play. The crowd honoured him with standing ovations.

Roger is the first man to reach eight Wimbledon finals. He will either play Andy Murray (ATP 4) or Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (ATP 5) on Sunday. If Roger wins the title, he will regain the top spot in the ATP World Tour rankings, where he can equalize Pete Sampras’s record of 286 weeks at No. 1!

Murray can hardly get his first serve in, and Roger is now punishing him with the second serve big time. Break point for Roger

MAROFF, MAROFF, if Roger manages to win this 3rd set, it will unsettle Murray and he can ride all the way to the finish line. I don't think a 5th set will be necessary if he can continue to hold serve here and create break points for himself. Murray's momentum has died down, he is no longer as quick with his shots as in the first 2 sets.

Murray goes down hard chasing Roger's ball. It was 40-0 on his serve and Roger managed to deuce it. He twisted his angle a little bit. We will see what happens
