Final against Nadal

18.05.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Our Champ has made it through to the final in Rome with a 7-6(5),6-4 win over 36 seed Benoit Paire to set the juices flowing with the prospect of another Nadal clash. As against Janowic, Roger was pushed by some excellent play but again showed his class on the important points. Our Champ had to overcome a break of serve half way through the first set and went on to win the tiebreaker. Roger then went in front early in the second set and never looked back.

Now comes the big one against his old rival Nadal – the way they are both playing at the moment promises another Roger - Nadal classic. "It's nice to have these revival moments for both of us," Roger said. "I'm sure we're both looking forward to it. I clearly am."

Basta! I've now switched it off and look forward to Channel 4's coverage of The French Open.

Come on Roger, this is painful. What ever he tries either does not go over the net or goes out of the court. My heart is breaking for him. Come do not lose any more games!
Beautiful shot just then from Rogi, a real RF moment!

I hate to say this but I think. Roger is deliberately underplaying

There must be a reason for this , he can't play like he has in his first games and now back to hitting the net and no fight!
Something's amiss??

Is it the powers that be saying. "this is. Rafas come back year, he must win everything ???
I just don't. f.. ...ing underst and !!

It's fucking boring. the whole week wasted to watch him, the whole week with hope just to watch final, in which he plays less than an incredible shit. Jesus..

roger made all the wrong choices today!! went for the slice for approach when its a backhand straight; went for the net when he had to hold on for another rally; too many ue (as usual), didn't get his first serve in and he didn't play to his backhand like he ought to....
