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.

I become numb when it is a roger match.My heart beat slows down and i have rushes of blood sometimes.I am getting way too nervous.
More than I should actually be and yes you and KEMNA are right that was a positive anger not the racquet breaking and yelling one.whenever it comes on smashing racquets nobody beats baghdatis'4 racquet breaking match.That was hilarious and once when youzhny smacked his racquet hard on his head,He started to bleed.Thank god roger puts a lid to such stuff.ALLEZ

:I'm not sure, but I believe Roger was practising on Center Court just a while ago, before the doubles match was due to start.: Yes Shatir, it was shown live on the ATP Finals website!

For those who didn't see it, Rafa gave Roger a hug as he left!

Roger practised with a 18 year old British guy, Sam Butler, a leftie, for about half an hour, signed autographs then went for a snooze!
