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.

OAKEL123, I do understand what you are saying, but what do you want? Roger to lose and never try to play Rafa? That is not his style. Have you not figured it out yet?
Maybe Rafa will defeat Roger again, BUT maybe he won't. Roger is NOT playing bad this tournament. And if he wanted to lose, then why not against Jerzy? That would be a valid reason.
There is not a single player out there who can beat Rafa on clay, but should all of them stop trying??? Is that what you want?

As I said TNC, better to play the best guy.

Thank you Greatest for an impressive match. You contained the big ball basher, loud mouth, arrogant .. inexperienced brat who believed he could defeat you and put him in his place.. Sorry you had to play so late. Hope you get ample rest for the next one. Hope you'll be able to cream B.paire like you did in your last meeting with him. Best of luck Champ.. We love you to pieces

Still think Roger can win? Rafa will always play well against him heck if I was him I wouldn't even be scard, simple play to the backhand you will get an error and extent the rallies. Rafa can attack and not miss something Roger cannot he will hit out or in the net out of the blue. Im not hating its just Rafa will always beat roger 8/10 times

Roger can defly win against Paire but will he ?
Which one makes sense for Roger - to lose in 3 sets with respectable scores against Paire or to break yr body, go all out and still lose 1-6,2-6 type scores against Nadal ?

Dearest Roger,
You did an excellent job against that tall tree last night!
Best of luck for tonight's match.
May God bless you!

I was hoping Berdy will beat Nadal or at least that he gives Nadal a hard time. I am still hoping Nadal will be given a hard runaround for preferably 3 sets!
Last night was quite a hard match last night for our Roger but at least he handled it well and get it to a straight 2 sets! In fact, I was very pleased with his performance. He was up against somebody he had never played before or seen play before. Also, Janowyz is a giant of a man with huge serves and power. Roger did very well!
