Roger battles back to reach semis

18.04.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger came back from one set down at the Monte Carlo Masters today to defeat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 2-6, 7-6(6), 6-1 and book a spot in the semis. It was our champ's 950th career victory.

Roger struggled in the opening set as he dropped his serve and clearly lost the set. Play in the second set was more even, eventually going into a tie-break where Roger just managed to fight off Tsonga's strong shots and capture the set. An early break in the decider gave Roger a real boost, with our champ going all the way, only leaving Tsonga one single game.

Roger will next face either defending champion Novak Djokovic or Guillermo Garcia-Lopez for a place in the final.

What a great match!! Still, I have to ask ... why do you so often have a problem with break points?

Thank you RF4WORLD
Your reports are always valued. I had been wondering with the 2 Swiss in the semis, if and when Roger gets to be ranked no.3 again. I think quietly Stan will be very relieved when Roger becomes Swiss No.1 again.
CHIEKO89. You may be lucky you missed the match, it was quite painful to watch, fantastic ending though! If you can watch a recording at least you will know the story has a happy ending! It was a day when nothing much went right for him but perseverance won the day!

Best wishes.

Great grit Roger to fight back against Jo! The backhand was filled with too many errors in the first set but soon as you found your rhythm it was all to easy. Good luck against Novak !
