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.

The one sad part of the Roger legacy is him not being able to find an answer for Nadal. The chip backhand to Nadal is a kids play and Roger should know it better. When it mattered the most Roger missed a forehand. Until Roger finds a way to return better from his backhand, Nadal wins. Its not like Roger did not have the matches to experiment nor the staff to back him up. I think he is just a lil stubborn there to find new ways to break Nadal.

again, you had him and let him go.... your first serve lets yhou go... but your head... and strategy!!!! I told you play a second serve disguised as first... he doesn' expect it..

Check this statistic: Nadal wins over all of his opponents because he has the highest 2nd serve receiving points won most than any other.... 78% !!!
