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.

and again.... you don't put the ball into play... one of the keys to beat rafa is contest his serve... you don't even put it into play... its impossible.

He needs a physical strenght training coach to give him more speed and ability... he will contest more points in the future.. perhaps

Roger is slowing down the pace of his service games nicely.
He should dictate the pace on his service! His movement is better in set 2.

Come on Rog! You can do it!
