Roger in semis

19.07.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger reached the semifinal of the German Open Tennis Championship in Hamburg with a 7-6(4), 3-6, 7-5 victory over Florian Mayer today.

It was hard work for Roger all the way, he won the tie-break of the first set had to drop the second. In the third set, he scored a break twice to take a lead but the German broke back at both occasions. Roger finally went on to close the match, holding serve after another break in the end after exactly 2 hours of play.

Roger will now play Argentina's qualifyer Federico Delbonis (ATP 114) in Saturday's semis.

Congratulations Roger on today's win. Take care of yourself, something physically was amiss from the 2nd set. Hope Stephane can help you and you can come out strong vs a very hard hitter with heavy leftie top spin tomorrow.

Rachel, I see what you mean about Roger in that black vest so I am equally as bad as you! Thank you RF4World what that treat just as I'm going to bed!!!

Roger, I really hope your back is OK. I was aware of you walking stiffly in the 2nd set, but I was too nervous to observe in the 3rd set. Anyway, congrats Roger! Please give us an easy match this time (hope your back approves it).

BTW, you have done way too much to help all the tournaments, you don't owe them. Please request early matches, like other top players in the future.

**RAMCHARAN** funny to mention serena playing a male. 1998 when venus and serena were 17 & 16, they claimed they could beat any male player ranked below 200. karsten braasch a cigarette smoker ranked #203 beat venus 6-2 and serena 6-1. but of course serena is a much better player now so i'm sure she could beat some of the guys.
