Eleventh final in Basel!

25.10.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger has made it through to the final in his home town Basel for an eleventh time. He defeated Ivo Karlovic (ATP 31) 7-6(8), 3-6, 6-3.

As expected Roger had to admit quite a few aces - 33 in total. Both players held serve in the opening set and it was eventually Roger who secured the tie-break 10:8. Karlovic managed the first break of the match in the second set to take a 5-3 lead and then easily serve out the set. Roger went on to score the next break to take the score to 3-1 and eventually celebrate his spot in the final after holding serve all the way.

Roger will play tomorrow's final - the 123rd of his career - against David Goffin (ATP 28). The two have only met once so far, in Roland Garros two years ago; Roger won the encounter in four sets.

The win over Dimitrov had already been a well passed test.
The win over Karlovic is a proof of your incomparable Talent.

The match was scary but not beautiful... his fault! not yours!
His aces were incommesurable but that's not the tennis I like.
Good that you didn't get more frustrated than bearable for the situation.

You are king of kings, lord of lords!

a very impressed RFan

MRSRF I have submitted online a complaint to the BBC about the exclusion of Roger's results.

BTW Paris draw is out. Maestro will face this gentle giant again I think in the third round if things are going as expected.

Allez Maestro tomorrow against David who is one of your fans I recall he mentioned that before.
