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.

Roger, go fight with your heart no matter what.

You connect with what you have been beloved of the balls of tennis - we watch tennis because of you.

fedfhurer, i was gonna right the same as you..rafas level was not that good, he did 2 things well, his serve and just hitting balls back in play and that was enough to beat roger.

FEDFHURER, Nadal's level is awful. Actually, I think the level of tennis decreased so much in this period.

ok guys, so now stay positive:

regroup, get a super physio and a strenght training coach...

He needs to up hiw physical and mental game big time.

Just for the record (and I know you and I hate this to our bones), Roger won a set against Djokovic, but couldn't even handle a break on dopal!

Disgusting... plus, nadal played way too low for a competitive level... if Roger was tired, the good news is that we can fix it with strenght and conditioning

if he WAS NOT... then what else can h

It feels like Roger lost the match before it was played. :(
Where was his fluid movement of yesterday? I'm so pissed (not at Roger, just pissed in general).

They have now played only five times on indoor hard courts and this was the first time Rafa won.

The doubles semi finals is deep into the 2nd set. If it goes to a third, Roger's match could be delayed by half an hour or more.

the way I see it, Fed gave up!! which is fine if he has found the correct answers to win tuornaments..

Lady luck is not on an on-call service!!!
