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.

Hello Roger
Congratulations on a wonderful win against a talented young player. Having said that ,I must admit I am not an admirer of those who hit huge serves--Janowic moves well for a tall man,tends to rush his shots, however youth is on his side and have no doubt he will improve his game and his posture.
Our Roger moves quicker that lightning,serving well and importantly as per usual, you remained calm and focused whilst playing some wonderful tennis.Thank you.
Good luck for S/F
