Roger battles back to reach semis

18.04.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger came back from one set down at the Monte Carlo Masters today to defeat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 2-6, 7-6(6), 6-1 and book a spot in the semis. It was our champ's 950th career victory.

Roger struggled in the opening set as he dropped his serve and clearly lost the set. Play in the second set was more even, eventually going into a tie-break where Roger just managed to fight off Tsonga's strong shots and capture the set. An early break in the decider gave Roger a real boost, with our champ going all the way, only leaving Tsonga one single game.

Roger will next face either defending champion Novak Djokovic or Guillermo Garcia-Lopez for a place in the final.

Thank you RF4WORLD
Your reports are always valued. I had been wondering with the 2 Swiss in the semis, if and when Roger gets to be ranked no.3 again. I think quietly Stan will be very relieved when Roger becomes Swiss No.1 again.
CHIEKO89. You may be lucky you missed the match, it was quite painful to watch, fantastic ending though! If you can watch a recording at least you will know the story has a happy ending! It was a day when nothing much went right for him but perseverance won the day!

Great grit Roger to fight back against Jo! The backhand was filled with too many errors in the first set but soon as you found your rhythm it was all to easy. Good luck against Novak !

@RF4WORLD Always thank u for all your links, videos and comments. I look forward to your comment every time I come here. I know I am not the only fan who says this, but I would like to also say this from my heart. Our Maestro is indeed fortunate to have a fan like you.

I missed the match. But I am soooooooo HAPPY to see the result. I am sure it is well earned. Bravo and congratulations.

Djokovic is through, but Garcia-Lopez gave him trouble. Never mind, over to Roger the Lionheart! Djoko will make a tasty morsel for him!
2 Swiss in the Semis which is wonderful to see. I can still dream of an all Swiss final.
I hope no-one calls Roger mentally weak after today, he kept on trying, so much kept going wrong for him but he kept trying and he broke free. I hope things go better from the start tomorrow for him. Roger showed a lot of courage today. So happy Rogi! x
