900th victory!

02.06.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Our Champ certainly put us through the mill today but he came through in 2hrs 59mins 6-1, 4-6, 2-6, 6-2, 6-3 against Gilles Simon.

 

From having one of his shots in the first set described as “defying the laws of physics” our Roger then went on to lose the next two sets. Simon came out playing attacking tennis in the second & third sets which is not his normal game. But it seemed as though Roger never really lost control of the match and patiently built his way through to the fourth set and again took control – perhaps it was the sight of Mirka with her head in her hands at one stage that spurred him on. On the way he passed yet another record completing his 900th tour win. Only Connors and Villas now hold more triumphs under their belts. It was also amazing to hear the support that Roger enjoyed from the French crowd even though he was playing a French competitor.

 

Our Champ is in action again next Tuesday when his opponent will be Jo Wilfried Tsonga in the 1/4 finals.

Stop hitting it to his forehand you stupid person haha. Roger is still living in the days were player could not defend. Just pepper his backhand, Rafa does to you and everyone else and it works so why do you?!!

roger has to get constant 30 0 or 40 0 when he's on serve so tsonga gets desperate and breaks his will to comeback... otherwise, roger is gonna have a LLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOONGGGGGG day....

Federer is much in a hurry to make the points he must be patience....

Sometimes I question Roger's intelligence. Keep it away from his bloody forehand.

okay, here are my predictions for this set.... it will most likely go to tiebreaker, and roger will probably get that one
