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).

GOOD3352 I see you joined today. However given your post you are also Monomania/Goodmania! You can't fool us!

I reckon despite having had mono virus/glandular fever in 2008, Roger is now in full health once again and is playing so beautifully. Agree?

Another great win, Roger, vs Raonic. But I knew you'd win it in straights. He's not yet crafty or versatile enough to beat you. Now for the final and good luck against ND for your 8th Wimbledon Crown!! Much love as always to you and your very dear family.
