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).

Raonic: "I’m going to step out there and I’m not playing the seven-time Wimbledon champion. I’m not playing a 32-year-old man. I’m not playing father of two sets of twins, which is a very low possibility I bet to do. I’m not playing the guy that’s won whatever he’s won, which I could probably list quite vividly.
I’m playing a guy that is standing in my way of what I want to achieve"

Its one thing to be confident, but the least he can do is acknowledge he is playing a LEGEND. T

I clap Roger FANCY. Sometimes I am just laughing my head off with some of Roger's apparently casually executed winning shots. He is a star!
