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."

I agree, Rogers last loss against Rafa does not count. Roger was totally seized and in a lot of pain with his back. He was very brave stepping onto the court against such a person as Rafa. Come on Roger, your A game and a lot of magic please, with that you can lift the trophy and we will all be celebrating and in paradise. Good luck Roger, come on, swat him!!!

As you said in your interview Roger. Someone has to stop Rafa. Let that someone be you! You have beaten some really awkward players to get to the finals and in two straight sets, you have shown great confidence and determination to get there. Do not allow that confidence and determination to waver when faced with Rafa!! Bring your great service back to bear, mix it up, keep him guessing and stop him from getting into his rhythm. You can beat him Roger, if you play your best no one can beat you!x

Most of the world thinks that Nadal will win. But you can not blame them considering the results so far.
This is a great opportunity for you to beat Nadal on clay after a long time and win the tournament. It would be great for your confidence. Good luck.

Nadal played a great game yesterday. Perhaps under the influence of Novak's loss.
So many times you played great during the tournament, then lost to Nadal. Remember RG 2011? You've earned the title, but....
Could you forget the past and finally conquer Rome?
