Roger through to semis!

09.11.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger booked a spot in the semis of the ATP World Tour Finals after a 4-6, 7-6(2), 7-5 win over Juan Martin del Potro today.

 

Roger had difficulties returning del Potro's serves in the beginning and simply committed too many errors in the opening set - letting the Argentinian take a 5-1 lead and eventually the set. In the second set, Roger fell a break behind again but this time, he managed to level at 3-3. Roger later played an excellent tie-breaker to level in sets. But our champ lost the momentum in the decider as he let his opponent open up a 3-0 advantage. But once again, Roger came back full blast, finding his way into the match not only levelling but scoring another late break to go up 6-5 and then closing out the match with his 10th ace.

Roger will meet Rafael Nadal in the semis tomorrow at 2 p.m.

Fed looks slightly tentative moving, esp on Nadal's serves.
But he's played solidly on his own serves. Go Rog!

@KEMNA,

I agree. I felt things feel "eerie" the way Rafa slows down proceedings on his serve, relative to Roger's quick play. But I guess he isn't violating the 25 second rule yet.

GUYS, I AM NOT HAPPY WITH CARLOS AS UMPIRE

HE IS SCARED OF RAFA. AT THE BERDYCH MATCH HE WAS TOO AFRAID TO GIVE RAFA A WARNING FOR COACHING OR FOR TIME VIOLATION
