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.

awww I wish Roger improve his backhand return....his backhand stroke is so weak...it's so venarable against nadal.....only if he can return with backhand like djokovic, He can beat nadal all the time after his stroke weakened by mono virus in 2008

OAKEL123, can't you just stop with your stupid remarks?
If Roger wins, you will be the first to congratulate him.
He is now 5-3, one game to go.
