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.

I don't believe in turning your back on your loved ones.
I don't believe in abandoning someone who gave you so much pleasure.
I don't believe in kicking someone more when he is down.

Maybe you are, but I am not. Last year, he lost at RG, but what did he do after that??? He won Wimby !!!

So sigh yourself !!!

Im not turning my back against him but this is not only a case of losing.
It looks like he's not willing to train hard or is mentaly off.

I hate to say this but maybe Toni Nadal was right..

Haas got kids and play better than fed the last months.
I'm so dissepointed. A dream draw, 2 qualifiers an injured benneteau and a choker simon and still such poor results.

What is wrong!!

Boting, what has love got to do with it??

You all were "loving" Roger when he gave you so much to cheer for, all those winnings. Now he is losing and you all turn on him.

Still have to ask what love has got to do with it?

Do you turn on your loved ones when they don't deliver??? No, you don't.
You stick by them, no matter what. So what is the difference with Roger???

I hope Tsonga pulls it off and wins RG, he deserves it the most.

Rogi, what happened? One day we may find out. On One day we have the true RF,the next, we may get a glimpse and then something happens and you seem to be able to do nothing! I think forget about clay and practise very hard for Wimby!
I am so sad Rogi and also very baffled about your performance once again.
A big hug Rogi! xxx

Gooo Tsonga from now on!! He deserves it and has tons of more talent than runner ferrer. Everybody but Nadul may win and federer needs a serious bootcamp.
Wonder if he skips Halle
