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."

Dear Roger,

I can't find proper words to describe how great it is to have you in a final again, specially after the difficulties you've had to deal with over the past few months.

After the dissapointment you got in Madrid, came to Rome to play some of your magnificent tennis and this is truly a joy for all those who love you.

I just hope you find your pace today and may we see you getting crowned at the third assault at last.

Always with you, champ. Thanks for let us believe.

May God give you the hope and strength for the final today so that we all celebrate your victory.

Very best of luck!

You have so much charisma, determination currently and ability, For that you should be rewarded in Rome this afternoon. X

Flump my concern was coverage of Roger's matches on the BBC Sport website. For some reason they don't like talking about him. I have complained twice to the BBC and so far to no avail.

Yes there isn't enough tennis coverage unlike that male orientated football ..... Yawn

The good news is that Channel 4 last year started extensive coverage of the French Open and will do this again from the 26th May.

Happy days to come!

All the best for the Rome finals. You can and will beat him. Raise the trophy aloft.
May God bless you no end. Godspeed my champion.
Thanking you,
Yours lovingly,
