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.

At the end of the day Federer is just another player now, Ferrer and Tsonga aren't scared it is there best chance at a final Federer is no longer a threat.

amazing, fucking roger.. you had him in the first and you let him go. Sadder is that he woul0ve probably crumbled under the pressure if you had won that set

No Excuses for god sake he is being battered he isn't hurt he is just outplayed.

No matter what the outcome Roger, I still love you and am proud to be your fan, no matter how you play.

Because.... it is easy to judge him from our couch, he is playing and knows something is wrong, but he is trying to come out of this.

Roger lost this match after the 1st set. Checking the score from my phone now and then.
