Roger defeats Del Potro

01.11.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger took revenge after the loss in Basel last Sunday, defeating Juan Martin Del Potro 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 to reach the semi-finals in Paris-Bercy.

 

Roger showed an excellent match and took an early 3-1 lead, enough to eventually secure the opening set. Neither of the players managed a break all the way until the end of the second set, when Del Potro levelled in sets. The decider proved a true fight on the court. Roger took a 3-2 lead with a first break, his opponent did the same right afterwards - but another break by our champ gave him the necessary advantage to book his spot in the semis.

Roger will play Novak Djokovic in tomorrow's semi-final.

roger played a good match but his team must see what he is doing wrong.

1. first serve was good but needs to be more consistent
2.net play was good, but at the end to much bad decisions. dont come in that often because you become predictable. dont come in after a second serve on a big point.
3. this is the most important one, ive said this time and time again YOUR RETURN OF SERVICE needs to improve big time. it is just not goog enough any more. you are giving to much free points away.

I'm happy to see you playing much better Roger, you had the chance to win this match in straight sets but it was a good tournament all around. I don't like Djoker's attitude so hopefully you'll win your match against him next week. good luck my hero <3

It is Annacone's fault that Roger sucked this year... not Rogers... he listens to the guy he pays to train with.

He fortunately realized Annacone is a loser and got rid of him... Now, its up to Roger but he has already shown great improvement hasn't he?

He still needs specific work with strategy and physicality... aside that he is fine.

and I only charge 300 dollars an hour Rog!

Salutes!
