Roger defeats Gasquet

07.11.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger showed a great performance at the ATP World Tour Finals to secure a 6-4, 6-3 win over Richard Gasquet today.

"Richard has an incredible playing style and is a dangerous shot-maker," Roger said. "There was pressure today after losing my first one. It was a big win for me and I hope now to keep it up against Juan Martin."

Roger started by losing the first six points of the match but went on to score a first break only shortly after that. Gasquet came back to level at 4-4, but Roger managed another break to take a 5-4 lead and then served out the set. Roger had to battle his way through on several occasions in the second set, but still held a clear advantage and eventually converted his sixth match point.

Our champ will play Juan Martin del Potro on Saturday. If del Potro loses his match against Novak Djokovic later today, the match between Roger and the Argentinian would be a direct encounter to decide who can clinch a spot in the semi-finals.

FEDFHURER,

Roger was down 5-1.
His first service game was bad - 3 errors to go down 0-40, then 2 break points saved, error on the 4th.
2nd Service game was good, led 40-0, but Del Po hit two return winners and finally broke again.

That was so close :(
But seriously good signs. The only way Juan was winning points towards the end was with a big first serve.
