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've been watch tennis for years, honestly u r the best. I believe you can win every single match u play bcuz your mentality is like no one other's, ur skills are unique &u r so in love with the game. the only one who makes you lose is YOU when u turn your back to the game & be out of your mood, i think you feel as if you lost your interest to winning & lost hope. just remember u are no.1, can win any point any match no matter how bad it goes&PLEASE:HAVE FUN,bcuz IT's UR GAME, U R THE GAME.

Attack the second serve return, Roger, like you did against Simon. Mix up your backhands and use every shot you have. When you mix it up, you are the best in the world! Go for it, Roger and have fun out there trying to figure out this puzzle! You have nothing to lose, go for it!
