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.

You contained him so well, Roger! And we saw a great match, with inspired shots, and a variation from power to precision and ingenuity from you. It was so good watching you all along. You were calm, the kind of calm that says "I know what to do"! Bravo, and for the upcoming match, repay tricksters!

Dearest Roger
It was a great match and you showed your extra class. It's funny to see how some of your fans worry that much for a break agains you and think you are already out of the tournament.
You've always been a very focused player and have performed some great come backs in the past, so I didn't doubt for a second that you were going to turn the result around.
Well done! Have a good rest and best luck for tonight.
Love you and support you always, always, always!!!!!
