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, you should've let DelPo through yesterday... He'd have had a better chance today.. I knew you're not in a better condition this year.. You're just giving away the match..

Roger is moving like there are stones tied to his feet.
It's not too late, but he needs to pull up his socks right about NOW.

The first set was on Rogers racquet. If he can get it, I dont think anyone else can help.

Yes ,Fedfhurer.. Roger needs to add muscle to his hands to stay with the top guys. He is pretty much doomed otherwise.. HE will get to semis for sure.. but nothing after that.

Nadal secures the break. There goes my day!!
