Ninth Wimbledon final!

04.07.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger clearly defeated Milos Raonic 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 today to set up a Wimbledon final against Novak Djokovic, it is the ninth Wimbledon final in Roger's career.

 

"That was a big victory, I really had to focus on every point. I know that is always the case at this stage but it was hard. I had to be very careful on my service games and I knew there were only going to be a few chances on his serve, but I am very, very happy," Roger said.

Roger was fully in control of the match, offering Raonic just one single break-ball in the entire match. Roger seized a total of three points, early in the first set and at 4-4 in set two and three.

On Sunday, Roger has the chance to break new ground once again: pushing his number of Grand Slam wins to 18 and winning a record eigth title in Wimbledon when he meets Novak Djokovic. The two players have met 34 times so far, Roger has won 18 of the encounters.

Roger lost the match by dropping serve in second set & 5th set. So more or less he handed over Djoko the second final of this year. Djoko had the advantage of serving first in 5th. So basically few silly lapses off Roger costed the match otherwise he played much better than Djoko. Djoko accepted it by mentioning Roger did let him win the match. Postives are Roger said he will comeback next year. He is no-3 again. He gained enough confidence to do well later on.

I surely drink to that too, fancy. Sad that SHATIR wasn't here though. Hope to hear from him soon too.

Cheers to that FANCY! We should always be nice to each other and always try to be positive for Roger.
I just want Roger to know we were thrilled to see his level of game and how he fought and we still love him.

@FEDFORTHOUGHT I completely disagee with your pt abt this strong era....in the roger era pplayers played a completely different game it was attack all round and that's y u see roger is not able to defend off FH ...in tht era bh slicec was for defence and FH attck always......now courts slow and hevy balls means ur going to see more rallies and closer longer matches which gives impression that the competition is very strong ...its not bcoz its abt stamina and younger players will have more stamin

Dear Roger,
All my respect and admiration for you. You fought to the last point. Very very -extremely- sad that the trophy is not in your hands and one more GS for your record.Heartbroken but very proud of you, nontheless.
I heard one of the commentators on Friday say "you are never in shock seeing this guy playing, but you're always in awe".
This is how I feel (and many people I am sure): in awe of you.
Keep trying and you will get the 18 GS.
See you in Cincinnati!

Most inspiring sportsman/athlete I've ever seen. He's just one-of-a-kind and I hope we see him playing for many more years.

The guy has made millions of people to watch tennis just because of him. How many people can do that? He deserved the win today. But this season is not over and I'm sure Roger will get his revenge sooner or later this year.

Sure thing CJ - The wine has gone so with a cup of tea cheers to Roger's wonderful Wimbledon and to his next Grand Slam win!!!

Maybe we can also celebrate with only positive post from now on too and generally being nice to one another!

I'm really sad that he lost, but in a sense I couldn't ask for more. He gave everything he had.

Even if Roger doesn't win another GS in his career, it doesn't matter for me. Tennis is not the same without him. His matches are different. And I predict Nadal won't surpass him in GS count. This era is slowly coming to an end, and Nadal's decline has already begun.

He has to win 4 more slams to surpass Roger. With the current competition, I see that as very, very unlikely.
