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.

Woah - Baghdatis went full mental there.

Talking of Racket Breakers - I recently searched if Rafa broke rackets - never seen him do it on court, but supposedly in a game against Gaston Gaudio (a clay court specialist and 2004 Roland Garros champion), he was so mad losing, he supposedly broke all 7 of his rackets in the locker room. This was when he was 18-19 and wasn't expected to beat Gaudio.

Roger has only broken his racket twice after he became a grand slam winner.
