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.

I hope A.I. is wrong about Roger missing Roland Garros!
Judging from Mirka's absence in Monte Carlo, I'll take a guess and say the babies are less than 3 weeks away!

Remember, in 2009, Mirka was court side during Roger's Wimbledon triumph (1st week of July) and the twins came 2-3 weeks later!

Yes but if Roger does win, it remains against Djokovic who has a major problem with his right wrist. Uneven match from the onset.

I would have thought Roger would be watching from somewhere but I would have thought tucked up in the warm somewhere. No sign of him on Swiss transmission. Plenty of shots of Severin watching.
Come on Stan!
