Roger vs. Stan in final

19.04.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger celebrated a 7-5, 6-2 victory over defending champion Novak Djokovic at the Monte Carlo Masters today, securing his spot in the final against Stanislas Wawrinka.

In the opening set, Roger had to fight off two break - and set - points at 4-5. He then shifted a geat to secure a break himself and eventually serve out the set. He put on pressure right from the start in the second set, jumping to a 5-1 lead and easily sealing the victory.

He will now play his fellow countryman and Davis Cup team-mate Stanislas Wawrinka in tomorrow's final.

A lot of Monte Carlo rain here at the moment - yuck!

It's not the sniffing.
It's the timber of his voice that's different. Not an excuse, but something that might have affected him nonetheless.
Anyway! Roger gets a nice break now of two more weeks.

roger needs to look at this thing of losing after winnin first set......surely he canbreak instead of taking it to tiebreaks when the other person is down after hes won the 1st set

Come a on Roger. You had a good Monte Carlo a tournament you were not going to play in. If you get to play in further on the clay this year, you are well set up for success. I still feel this is a good year for you. Stan the man has certainly become Stan the Stanimal!
Come on Roger, I still love you!

Well done roger , I know it was a quite different match because of stan.
Sure I am sad you lost but you made me happy many many times
Thanks again

I've commented on Roger's press conferences before. He sniffs! Maybe he's got problems with his sinuses?

Totally true @SHATIR, he shoul dhave taken the second set !

This is a transition year for RF and he has gotten off to a shaky start with a few lucky wins. Novak and Nadal are hurt and Murray and DelPo stink,
This was great opportunity to win tourney he has not won before. Even Connors won this. Shame on you RF.

@Fancyfree,

Ignore the negativity. I don't even read the comments of the non-regulars here unless they seem really worth it.

Btw is it just me or does Roger's voice sound like he has a cold? I felt the same thing at yesterday's press conference.

Roger seemed to self district in the last set, what a shame. I thought it would be a shoot out. Well done Stan, you played well. It is good to see you win some things but I confess I am a very disappointed Roger fan!
