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.

1-❤ ((o(*゚▽゚*)o)) Awesome!!!

Very well done my wonderful champion. That's definitely the spirit! It was fabulous the way you displayed your resources and tactics. And even the match went on longer you still saved a lot of time. Wow only you can do that! Impressive assortment of shots, that over the head lob, was like magic. And your aces! How you placed them and the effect you gave them was masterful!

2-Thrilling and fun match! I enjoyed it. I was sure you were going to prevail, so it was interesting to see it unfold. And it was very nice that Gilles and you were smiling when it was over, happy the both of you enjoyed the battle. Great!

3-Love everything about you Roger! From every sun spot on your beautiful face to everything you do on court. Also love the side brows and even I love your hair longer, have to say that you look very handsome with the new hair cut. You are absolutely stunning! And as we would say on Twitter #Hot ;) By the way I think you're not receiving my tweets. I'm confused.

Impressive numbers, congratulations! Your hard work keeps paying off! Enjoy. I'm very happy for you.
