Semifinal in Rome

18.05.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Our Champ came through a much tougher test tonight against Jerzy Janowic 6-4, 7-6(2) in an hour and 25 minutes. Roger had to raise his game in the second set as Janowic broke in the first game and held through to 5–4 when Roger managed to draw level at 5-5. Our Champ then went on to 6-5 but Janowic managed to hold on to  take him to 6-6 with Roger taking the match 7-4 in the tie break. The match gave us some wonderful rallies from both men with a lot of very fine touch shots throughout. Roger was able to raise his game as necessary and contained Janowic when needed.

He now meets Benoit Paire in the Semi-Finals.

Fancyfree, i also got that impression.
He wasent giving it all because if a possible final against rafa.
And indeed rafa could have lost a few times the last tournaments and is broken many times so if roger plays likes the past matches he will have a shot!

Believe is the key, believing in victory.
I say bash his backhand, short points, big serve!

Just wonder on reflection, if Roger was conserving energy for the final ..... ?

Another great win today, Roger, congratulations! It was obvious you'd beat Paire but he did play well. Good luck for your first Rome title, expecting to see you lifting that trophy, this time it's for you!
Much love as always to you and your dear family.
