Roger battles back to reach semis

18.04.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger came back from one set down at the Monte Carlo Masters today to defeat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 2-6, 7-6(6), 6-1 and book a spot in the semis. It was our champ's 950th career victory.

Roger struggled in the opening set as he dropped his serve and clearly lost the set. Play in the second set was more even, eventually going into a tie-break where Roger just managed to fight off Tsonga's strong shots and capture the set. An early break in the decider gave Roger a real boost, with our champ going all the way, only leaving Tsonga one single game.

Roger will next face either defending champion Novak Djokovic or Guillermo Garcia-Lopez for a place in the final.

Commentators said he had to cut his practice session short by about 20 mins today so it may be a bit more serious than he is letting on.

Hi ILR! :)
Enjoy the match!

If Djokovic really has a right wrist issue, it will affect his serve most of all.
We'll find out soon enough!

Allez Roger!!

Hi everyone. Here we go. By the looks of Djokovic's arm it may go in Roger's favour.

At least Roger knows what arm to aim for!

Woah - Djokovic's entire forearm is heavily taped.
Hope Roger doesn't get distracted, and plays his natural game.

Cheers Shatir which means Djokovic is going to play. What a pity.
