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.

Roger's career is done. He can't win at Wimbledon. He is simply too old to grind it out.

As you said Tsonga knows how to beat you but you won't let it happen. I hope you win a set. Maybe we should expect more of these days.

Am I fair If I say there are no excuses for this. Last year he proved he can still play great tennis, beat everyone and win big tournaments. It cant be gone in less than a year! I have a feeling he's mentaly not there

Quick, but Roger has no say in the match its on Tsonga's racket, I'd love to coach him, not his technique for obvious reasons. But his tactics are so crap.
