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 making bloody excuses, he is not hurt he is just not as good anymore Tsonga and Berydych are beating him a lot these days. Don't be Rafa type oh he was injured. He is just not as good as the top 5 now deal with it.

that's it... get rid of the coaches and go for wimby...

It's not excuse. Probably he's getting outplayed since he's hurt and not serving good. I don't see a reason why he let that lead go and then lose 2nd set too. Common he's not that bad all of a sudden. Or he's mentally not there. But anyway only he knows, we can't judge him from here, right?

30 ues he does not deserve to win today
