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.

beat Nadal, not anymore. It is over. This is just another stupid sport where defenders win. Football is very similar. So goodbye, this is the end for me. You will be happier without my pesimistic posts. Roger, look after your kids, forget this stupid sport, do something more interesting in your life, because this sport become very boring.

Hulietta, If we were to set his curriculum so that he may learn something, what do you think we should set? Hopefully the curriculum we set will teach him manners to that he knows how he should conduct himself in mixed company and when he shows himself in public. Here is the first book that I would set for him:

Pride and Prejudice. Unfortunately, I think it may be a bit above his intelligence level. We will have to see if he can actually understand what we are trying to teach here. ;-)

Oh Roger :( Now I can't cry.. You played amazing in the whole tournament, but against him, simply you just can't play well, can't play like you did in the previous round. I don't blame you, never, it must be something serious in your head, against him. Heartbreaking loss, unfortunately.. But I'm proud of you, you're still capable of winning lots of matches, against great players! We all stay with you, it's a fact. Always support you! Don't be sad! You're the greatest Champion! Lots of love!

@TUNA4444: you don't understand sport at all, you probably never played any form of sport.

Nadal clearly played better and deserved to win. Bummer that RF couldn't reach the same level which he reached against Tsonga and Murray.

Roger, I hope you continue the new path you've taken. It looks like it works so keep up the good work and we'll keep enjoying your tennis.

I play tennis over 20 years and I know what I am saying. He cannot be
