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.

SHATIR, I am not the owner of the site but I have an opinion. Fancyfree is not a Federer fan!!!

as for roger, the same story again, sometimes i see him just hitting the first serve like i will see where it lands, as in some big points he must go for placement in my opinion. i m sure that if he gets more first serves in, he would not lose games that easy. rarely nowadays he wins points on his second serve.

ADI1008,

You need to calm down. You don't own the site, and you cannot tell other members to go away.
It's bad enough Roger lost, we don't have to act nasty to each other. Most of us are Fed fans here, including Fancyfree.

Actually, it hasn't been about "throwing the game away" in quite a while. Fed has to redline his game to have a chance but he can't play very long at a high enough level. The ue count which some people think is "unlucky" or "sloppy" is the necessary extreme risk taking. But nadal, and djoko, are just so good these days that it takes enormous amounts of risk and luck to beat them.

buddy you are so wrong. I kept telling myself that... It's when roger GRINDS IT UP AS A WARRIOR LIKE YESTERDAY, when he will beat them all.... not by letting himself down.

He alway's in the Match (1h:19min) he try to play his Game and most of he played, but abt 15,20% he miss his shots which make him Loser & sad all of us too.
ONE THINK CLEAR, ROGER CAN COMPETE ALL THE GUY'S&SHOULD KEEP HIS POSITION ON NO:3, if he Maintain his Level of Game which is he is played in last 3 Tournament.
2014 will be a Good for Roger surely.
Till Time Good by from my side to all Fan of Roger keep healthy&many wishes of Christmas in advance.
see u all in Australian OPEN 2014
Take C
