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.

Robbie Koenig just read some statistics since 2009 re Roger getting broken in the beginning of third sets and it is a steady increase up to 2013 where it is at 100%. Startling.

I hope not but this is like a repeat of what I saw at Basel. Delpo making a break and then serving so well Roger could do nothing about it.
Come on Roger break him and quickly!

I think confidence is his problem. I feel sick watching this match. Roger don't you know who you are? You are the one and only Roger Federer, now act like it.
