Roger battles back to reach semis

18.04.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger came back from one set down at the Monte Carlo Masters today to defeat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 2-6, 7-6(6), 6-1 and book a spot in the semis. It was our champ's 950th career victory.

Roger struggled in the opening set as he dropped his serve and clearly lost the set. Play in the second set was more even, eventually going into a tie-break where Roger just managed to fight off Tsonga's strong shots and capture the set. An early break in the decider gave Roger a real boost, with our champ going all the way, only leaving Tsonga one single game.

Roger will next face either defending champion Novak Djokovic or Guillermo Garcia-Lopez for a place in the final.

I don't want to comment about your match against Tsonga. You need to play an aggressive match with confidence to beat Djokovic tomorrow
Wish you all the very best

Roger: I think you are the most amazing tennis player ever, but I really hate when you make me suffer like you make me suffer this morning. Please, don't do that again.
Good luck tomorrow. I will see you like I always do. Kisses

Really impressed by your mental strength, Roger. You never lost your cool head despite of things going bad again and again.

You we're playing some beautiful points, but having really bad luck in many of the important points.

Naturally, the display of self confidence on the third set was superb by contrast!
