Roger advances into semis

14.03.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger advanced into the semis in Indian Wells without any trouble, defeating Kevin Anderson (ATP 18) 7-5, 6-1.


Roger was fully in control once more, only having to defend a break-point once early in the match. Anderson's strong serve did not trouble our champ and he finally managed to break the South African in the last game of the opening set. With two more breaks in the second set, he wrapped up the match after 69 minutes.

"It was big to win the set and then to go on to break early in the second. Then double break was like a bonus. From then on I was home, basically. It was a really good match for me," Roger said.

Roger will now meet Alexandr Dolgopolov (ATP 31).

SHATIR, ILR92, I also can't wait for the match!

I can't wait either, it will be the second time that I'm able to watch again. Lets hope Roger is fully recovered from yesterday's doubles match.

Dear Roger, you played such a clever match with Anderson that I think your cool thinking dictated your shots. Keep that strategy with Dolgo!
Such a pleasure to watch your game!
Love ya always!

Roger: Sad with your lost in doubles but I beleive the main purpose was to strenghten the doubles bond with Stan for DC and that was definetely achieved, at least in hard courts. Now you should play doubles with him in Oeiras as well and singles to be stronger on clay, grass is no matter, no one will put a grass court against you. Great win against Anderson, you kept serve, that is the key today and in the final no matter the opponnet, keep serve, mix it up, effects show and GOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

Majestic win against Anderson. Congratulations ! Looks like you are in an 'enlightened' state where one's indestructible life-force changes the environment around them. Grace, fluidity...in full flight.

Best of luck in your match against Dolgopolov.

Keep in the Zen. With you always.
