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.
