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.

I join you, CJM. With a glass of water. I'm so happy that we all stand strong for Roger. Here in the Netherlands it's raining a little too. To Roger, his family, his team and his fans.

K3 - exactly Roger uses slice for low bounce and skid but today the court just made the shot feel like its played on a clay court. That's why Novak hit so many passing shots of Roger's return approaches.

CJM, I will join you. I'm just gonna fetch my bottle opener.

Raquela - there's no power to the people to decide that but with all the corruption in sport worldwide it's hard to trust the integrity of the professional bodies that govern sports.

That is not rain FANCY, that is Rogers fans crying for him, that his amazing efforts were not rewarded by a win. I am thinking I need to have a wine to toast him anyway. The champagne I will keep until his 18th slam, it will come. Anyone going to join me in a toast to Roger, does not have to be alcoholic, over the website?
