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.

@shivspyder...I had said on the very first day tht the court looks slow on the first day itself....and u can see hoe pale the court was today....roger could not drag him to the net ....in 2012 he played short slices and they didn't get up and he got these baseliners to come to the net...

... But instead, today is just one of those sad days, both for us and for Roger. One of those really sad days. I wish to thank Roger for the absolutely wonderful tennis he showed us today and for being the kind of sportsman he is. He is a true idol for me, and I will continue to support him together with the hundreds of thousands of fans he has worldwide. Always. Thank you Roger.

I am just overwhelmed by sadness and disappointment and the feeling of injustice. With the tennis he played today and has played up to now, Roger really deserved to raise the trophy again this year. I believed in him until the very last moment, and with that small slip at the end the match was finished. My wholehearted hope for Roger to become the champion at Wimbledon once more - which he is truly worthy of - was shattered. New chances and new hopes will come, but today should have been the day

Thank you!!!!!!
YOU are the World Number 1!!!! Everybody knows that.
God Bless YOU!!!! See and follow you everywhere you go. This one never happened for us.
I don't want to sound bitter, even though I am somewhat sad.

BUT come on Fed Community lets ask and demand!!! Why don't they test the dam joker, I bet he uses drugs just like his friend Troicki!!! Hey all, they get tested in every other sport.

K3 - I can see myself following tennnis in bits and pieces after Roger retires. For me, I've watched real tennis in his time. No one is going to inspire me to watch tennis more than he did. Baseline duals are just boring especially on grass, the surface that should force players to adapt their styles not the other way around where players destroy most of the grass and you pretty much playing on a subcontinent cricket pitch with a net and painted lines.

Me too. But I prepare for the trolls just in case. But I think I never saw Roger fight like he did today.

Roger,
I am happy and sad..
I love you very much.

@SHIVSPYDER precisely .67 approaches to net...just 35 for djok is this grass court tennis....imagine I roger retires ...yuolll have two robots slugging it out

20 passing shot winners for djok....its just abt stamina now tennis...how much u can push off ur legs....just impossible to come to the net....m sure after roger retires people will get tired of rallies and courts will have to be sped up
