Roger breezes into semis

22.01.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger has seen off the challenge of Andy Murray to reach the semi-final of the Australian Open.with a 6-3, 6-4, 6-7(6) and 6-3 win.

 

"I'm probably one of the guys who misses more break-point opportunities than other guys so I'm kind of used to it. You stay positive - give yourself a chance," Roger said.

Roger did not face any break points while converting both of his opportunities in building a comfortable two-set lead. But Murray got his first and only break chance in the third set when Roger was serving for the match at 5-4. After Murray was successful with that, he even went on to defent two match-points in the tie-breaker and win the set. Roger won the opening game of the fourth set before Murray battled in his serve as the two players went to deuce 10 times. Roger later broke Murray in the eighth game and held serve this time to wrap up the win in 3 hours and 20 minutes.

Roger will now face Rafael Nadal in the semi-final on Friday in what will be their 33rd encounter on the ATP Tour.

I think that Roger couldn't overcome being mad at himself. We agree that RN plays ugly, but he also is annoying. There's nothing wrong w/ Roger's game, he does need to clean the UE though, but overall he's doing what he needs to do. I'm sure there's a lesson for Roger in this horrendous match. I hope Roger understands that for Nadal it's personal. RN pretends not to care about GOAT status, but he does. RN will do whatever it takes to beat Roger in everything.
