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!

The now is now cheering for Murray to get a break from Roger while serving for the championship. Probably not gonna happen. FIngers crossed. Murray gets the first point. In the beginning of the match, Murray came close to disrupting his pre-eminence, Roger Federer on grass at Wimbledon, but our Roger will prevail. Roger is undeniably, unequivocally, the king of grass.

Ok people. It's 5-4. Roger to serve for the match. All nerves now, but I know he can do it in grand slam style. God be with him now. Murray see why it's not good to carry the burden of the whole country on your shoulders. I hope they have a shirt for Federer with the inscription NO 17 on it. Go Roger.

Roger one game away from winning it all. Can he break Murray's serve here and not have to serve for the championship? What an Omen for Murray, a huge huge loss.
