Finals in Halle!

15.06.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger booked a spot in the final in Halle after beating defending champion Tommy Haas 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 today.

Roger made far too many errors in the opening set, but surged to a 3-0 lead in the second set thanks to a series of forehand and volley winners. From then on, our champ looked sharp on the grass court, remaining solid on his serve and keeping up the pressure in the rematch of last year's final. He converted his second match point after 1 hour and 38 minutes of play.

Roger needs just one more victory for his sixth Halle title - he will play play either Frenchman Richard Gasquet or Russian Mikhail Youzhny on Sunday. It would be his first tournament title this season.

Youzhny is playing better and better every tour. Although 14-0 it is not like Roger should have defeated him with three bagels. The way he was playing, Novak/Rafa/Andy would also have trouble. Yes, they would win it too. But be glad Roger was tested throughout, also today, he knows he has not lost the hunger to win and he knows he is still ready to fight AND HE DID FIGHT. He knows if he can overcome the matches of Haas and Youzhny, than he has a really good chance at Wimby.

At AO, Federer was very good. Beat Tsonga in QF and pushed Murray to 5th (was tired due to the Tsonga match) whereas Djokovic had an easy Semis and an extra day off. At Dubai, he had 2 match points in the Semis against Berdych. Not a bad display though... Somehow he was mentally not there to close it out... Good that it didn't happen here. At IW he was injured clearly...

The way Roger has played today he might not even make it to the QF of Wimby.....
but he could also WIN Wimby !!!

Have you seen the Halle final? He didn't lose the first set with 6-2 or something or the tiebreak with 6-0, he lost the first set with one point. Have you seen the stats on the 2nd and 3rd set? Roger was amazing. YOUZHNY WAS JUST ALSO INCREDIBLE GOOD. He did beat Nishikori, Kohlschreiber and Gasquet. He was also very good at RG. He is not a nobody that Roger should have

walesfedarator Though federer did not win last year at halle he won wimbledon and now winning this why should one think he can not win at wimbledon he will definitely raise to the occasion and regarding your comments about orphans they are bit offensive and cynical

First: You are welcome to join a winner, please go to Rafa's site and become a Rafa fan. And then, when Rafa is 31 (and is still playing !!!) and is losing more to players who are 5 to 6 years younger, then destroy him too and find the new happening player.

Second: Leave Roger for us, his fans who believe he may not win pretty or easy, but he will fight his way through and with his hunger to win.

Third: Leave the name FEDERATOR., because YOU ARE NOT WORTH CARRYING IT.
