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.

His returns are off. Lack of concentration?

At least Roger's backhand will get a lot of practice against Paire, because annoying Nadal forehand tomorrow.....they should make the court to the right of Rafa slippery so he cannot run around his backhand. Don't water that part. C'mon Italians, make a plan.

If Benoit is in the final tomorrow, Nadal will give him a 'paire' of bagels.
