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!

All Roger needs to do now is to continue to play strong and hold serves. Murray's dream of winning is quickly coming to an end, or rather turning to a nightmare. I knew he was all barks and no bite when he started off aggressively in the beginning of the match. I knre he didn't have the cojones to go all the way. Murray is already burned out at this point. Go Roger go.

Roger must hold serve here and not let Murray get back into the match. And he did! It's now 4-2. @ games away from hoisting the CUP.

Roger serving to go up 4-2 in the 4th set. What a good rally. Artful Roger. OMG! It's 30-all. The whole crowd is no longer as noisy as they were when Murray was making his moves

And Roger breaks for the first time of asking. BOTING - now what? Roger should just keep holing serve now. The end is near, we can see the finish line.

Roger saves the break point and holds. HMMMM! What a stress and scare Roger have given everyone

Murray is becoming annoying now just like Djoko with all the challenges. He has a break point on Roger's serve. Comeon Roger

If Murray loses this match he will cry for sure, cos he fought so hard from the beginning of 1st set to the better part of 2nd set before he began to dwindle. His first service game does him in. Not good at all. He leads 1-0 to open up the 4th set.
