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.

Come ON ROGER! You have come back from this before! Come, on, FIGHT!

What the hell! Are you ok man! Or still hurting from that fall? Looks like you have no intention to fight today. Or your mind might be on Grass... Atleast its good that Tsonga is getting the chance to be in the final of his home slam. Tsonga vs Djoko, a definite cracker... Let's see. Surprise us!

BOTING - True however, getting the height on the ball try slice low to his forehand serve out wide both sides. He always presses to hard.
