Roger stronger than Stan

02.07.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger has made it through to the semis in Wimbledon thanks to a 3-6, 7-6(5), 6-4, 6-4 win over fellow Swiss Stanislas Wawrinka. It is Roger's ninth Wimbledon semi-final - he hasn't lost a single one of them in his career.

"I don't want to get too far ahead of myself, but I'm back strong this year," said Federer. "Last year was such a disappointment. I always try to win it and last year I didn't even come close. I was very deflated leaving on that note. It's good to be back in the semis, the prospect of going a step or two further is very exciting," Roger said.

Today, Stan Wawrinka started very strong and Roger fell back an early break which he could not recover from. In the second set, the players both held serve and Roger edged a win in the tie-break. In the third set, Roger finally converted the first of six break points to take a 4-3 lead and then the set. Another early break in the fourth put Roger on course for the semis, before he converted his fifth match point after 2:32 hours.

 

Roger will meet either Canada's Milos Raonic (ATP 9) or Australia's Nick Kyrgios (ATP 144).

Classic GOODMANIA pattern:

1. Federer got sick in 08 and he owned Nadal before that.
2. Only reason Nadal wins is because of Fed's mono virus.
3. Nadal is a dirty cheater, Federer is god
4. Federer is god
5. Federer is god
7. Mono virus is a serious illness and Roger is [still] sick
8. F U Fancy and Shatir, you Nadal haters! Go to Nadal's site
9. [Gets banned]
10. Creates new account
11. Start from step 1

Maybe GOODMANIA got banned and he created another account? Just a thought.

Oh god. Another guy talking about mono virus??

Very suspicious... his name is GOOD (Just like GOODMANIA)

Alternate account?

This guy needs to get a life asap. All he posts is about mono virus.
