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.

FEDFHURER
It doesn't matter if Djokovic is injured, he beat Roger last year when he was out of form from injury, if he had been playing like today, he would've beaten Djokovic in WTF, so there are some wins from Djoko in the H2H that should've gone to Roger. Just see it as 'leveling' the h2h to what it should be ;)

Come on Roger, serve it out! You are playing top form.
I know Djoko has a wrist problem but it does not seem to be effecting his ground strokes or getting to the ball. I think Roger has out played him regardless of what is going to be said after the match!
