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 will not watch the final...but record it....and only watch it when Stan wins...stupid tennis from Nadal...not the trace from federer.....he needs to work mentally to get better....federer defeats him self time and time again against Nadal. Totally unnessecary he must believe in his capabillitys which he has plenty...otherwise dimitrov is potential player to play like federer....but it will never be the Same when federer is gone...

the only way that Roger will beat him is if he is going off his legs,lets face it Rafa is constsntly in his head and no amount of telling him he can beat him it will not penetrate Rogers head we know it can be done but what can we do.It is sad because Roger played really well this last two weeks,all we can hope is Stan beats the Bull and Roger wins Wimbledon.
