Roger in semis

25.10.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger qualified for the semi-finals at the Swiss Indoors for the eleventh time in his career after a 6-3, 7-6(2) victory over Grigor Dimitrov.


Roger showed great tennis during several periods, even though he had to battle every now and then. He had to fight off five break-balls in his first service game but found his rhythm from there on, showing a great rest of the opening set. Dimitrov broke him early in the second set, Roger falling behind 3-5. He managed to save three set-points and take the set into a tie-breaker - which he clearly decided in his favour.

 

With his 50th victory in Basel he has now won 50 or more matches at 5 different tournaments (the others being Grand Slams). He is now just two victories away from qualifying for the Masters in London.

Roger will now play Canada's Vasek Pospisil (ATP 40) in his home town on Saturday.

Phew! Another nailbiter...my poor heart!

But the win is yours: great stuff our champ...good luck against Delpo - we know you can do it: use those slices down to his feet; he's not keen on those, but then who is?

Love as always, xxxxxxxxxx

Roger has won four consecutive matches for the first time since ..... ? Can anyone tell me?
10/26/2013 | 08:22 PM

Roger will be fine, he always talks about the balance of fire and ice, well, he's got it right on the Mark

Good. Luck. Beautiful. MaestroRx

Great win, Roger!!! You had us all on tenterhooks. But the solutions were there. Pospisil is a fine talent to watch in the future (pity about the 2hbh), but you are THE GOAT........

GOOD LUCK VS JUAN MARTIN, THIS ONE IS FOR YOU AGAIN. Congratulations too on your new record - equal first with Vilas with 10 finals at the same tournament!
Much love as always to you and your dear family.
