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.

Tsonga deserves it! But Djoko is on mission this year. It'd be tough. Now Roger, on to Grass. Be healthy!

I am so proud of you my maestro. It is better this way. Please rest your body and be ready for Wimbledon. It was not the best match for you but for me I am happy to have watched you play. You had a tough time with the wind and that fall . It is better that you are healthy than push it . It is a great run my dear Roger. please please do not be sad or disappointed. I love you always.

This is so painfull..not even a set!!This is ridicilous, what a letdown to the fans..where do we go from here??
06/04/2013 | 06:20 PM
boting you think the coaches are fine?

let me give you some facts:

Since Wimbledon 2012, Roger hasn't won shit.... except for cincy which doesn't count. He hasn't been able to convert break points nor to close matches decently.

Is that federer0s fault? well.. then what the heck are annacone and the other idiot doing????
