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.

Why must I watch this nonsense play, you won't be gifted unforced errors like against Simon.

***KEMNA****

We all love Fed but be honest with this performance he will be beaten like a dog

KENMA - I just enjoy watching the winners throw by. However Joe is playing very well like Wimbledon 2011 and Federer cannot defend. Bye bye Roger not being horrid but its happening today easy draw and you still cannot make the final your days are done.

Fed is tired, but he had his chances in the first set but now looks like RG is over for him :(

Since 4-2 Roger got arrogant, now he is being put in his place. With all due respect he has only one top ten win this year, Roger is not deserving of the top places until he starts winning matches.
