Roger defeats Djokovic

28.02.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger will play for a sixth title in Dubai tomorrow after a 3-6, 6-3, 6-2 win over Novak Djokovic. He will meet Tomas Berdych in the final.

After three defeats Roger was able to book another victory against Djokovic, now leading the head-to-head 17:15. Roger already dropped his serve in the second game of the opening set and was not able to come back after that. But in the second set, Roger managed his first break in the sixth game to later take the set. With two more breaks in the decider, Roger made everything clear in just under two hours of play.

Roger will play Tomas Berdych in Saturday's final, he leads the head-to-head 11-6. Our champ has won the tournament in Dubai 2003, 2004, 2005, 2007 and 2012.

Hello Roger
What a win, what a game, what phenomenal tennis from the Master beating Novak the 2nd Swiss player to do so this year. Heartiest congratulations.
Considering all that you have experienced during the past 12/12 with your injured back which not only prevented you from playing tennis the way that you wanted to and B /not able to practice during practicing blocks must have been so demoralising for you. However you're Roger Federer , the champion, the fighter the warrior.

Roger well done! You played great from the start, you kept at it. That's definitely the spirit! You're so smart. The net points were amazing! You broke his focus! And you beat him at his best, he was playing truly great.

You have some impressive mental super powers! I mean your command of 'the force' is spectacular.
