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.

Well done Roger. One more set.

On another note, I have just seen some black strapping tape under Djokovic's bandage and it looks like he may have tennis elbow rather than a wrist problem by where the strapping is.

ok guys, if Roger smelled the blood here he has to take it in two straight sets... time to win or die.

First set!

Ps: The last time Roger played Djokovic at Monte Carlo (in 2008), the Djoker retired shortly after losing the first set.
