Olympic semifinals

02.08.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger beat John Isner 6-4, 7-6(5) in the quarterfinals of the Olympic tennis tournament today - bringing him just one more win away from a first Olympic medal in singles.

 

"Being in the medal matches, at least I'll get two shots," Roger said. "That's why I looked at this match as a final. You can imagine the relief and happiness I feel right now."

Isner's serve kept Roger working hard, but our champ eventually found a way through in the ninth game of the first set. But Roger had to keep going strong as he still had to save a break point himself before then serving out the set. The second set also proved a tight run, going into a tie-break - with Roger getting a stroke of luck in just the right moment.

 

Our world number one will play Juan Martin del Potro in the semis on Friday. Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray will play each other in the other semifinal.

He lives to fight another day, hopefully with more energy and luck in the tank!!
Well held Roger, hopefully you had all your bad luck today and the finals will be more straight forward. I cannot believe that someone could create so many chances and convert so few, for what ever reasons!!
