Roger qualifies for Masters

30.10.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger has qualified for the ATP World Tour Finals twelve times in series thanks to a 6-4, 6-4 victory over South Africa's Kevin Anderson in Paris-Bercy today.


Right from the start, Roger showed that he wanted to dictate play. He broke Anderson straight away, taking a 1-0 lead which he held for the remainder of the opening set. He secured another break early in the second set but battled at 5-2 when he had to drop his own serve. At 5-4 Roger fought off break-points before he made the victory and his participation in London clear after 82 minutes of play.

Roger is the sixth player after Nadal, Djokovic, Ferrer, Del Potro and Berdych to have qualified for the World Tour Finals. In the past eleven years that he participated, he won the tournament six times.

Roger will play Germany's Philipp Kohlschreiber on Thursday in Paris-Bercy.

Isner V Djokovic shortly then Del Potro V Dimitrov. Both these matches sound intriguing.

Well done Stan! If there is anything better than Roger getting to London, then it is for Roger to have Stan as company! It would be amazing for Switzerland, the Swiss and for the pair of them. The confidence it ought to give Stan for the future should do him good.
It is so wonderful to see Roger smiling and relaxed again. Let us hope it brings us our Champ fully back to us with a trophy or two! Allez Roger, clean win this time!

I just went to the match thread on the Forum to find out what fans where saying about the end of the 2nd set (I am currently watching that set) and I was reassured that it really was Kevin Anderson who gave it a sudden extra to get a rebreak and hold serve before you could serve it out for the 2nd time. From what I have seen in Basel and this match you seem to have found your game and confidence back and so the results have come and will come again.
Have a good match today!

Hello Roger,
Congratulations on that decisive victory and sealing your participation in the WTF for the 12th consecutive year! Not only you but all the fans that got tickets just to watch you live are very happy you will be there again. When I come to think of it this is such an incredible achievement that you share only with Ivan Lendl and I hope that this is one record you will be able to break in the future as well. Not that I care about records that much, but because I love to see you play.

I reckon the organisers in London will be just as relieved as Roger and us that he has qualified. From what I have seen, only Roger fills up a stadium totally. Even if they did manage to fill up the place, a missing RF would have been very evident in the atmosphere. I cannot imagine a tournament like that without him. It will cause shock waves within the sport when he is finally forced to give up. I shudder at the thought! We are not there yet though, Roger is starting up again, love him!
