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).

After all the hard work Roger put in in AO, he started number 8 and ended at number 8.

Now in one tour he can go all the way to number 4.

AGAIN, and people wanted him to retire last year......... don't you guys ever learn??
Never write the GOAT off :)

I know what you mean but I seem to remember Roger used to do a similar think in his youth. Perhaps Isner will grow out of it as well.

@ILR,

I think Isner really has no chance against Roger, the way Roger is playing right now. He simply cannot get into Roger's service games, and Roger will find a way through one or two of Isner's service games.

But nonetheless, it really looks like Roger can handle Djokovic now too! No reason why it can't be an easier win than in Dubai!

@SavourIt

Snakes, scorpions and cacti (or cactuses). :P

@Fancyfree,

I just might, although I won't be glued to it.
