A fantastic comeback

01.06.2009 | Tennis

Roger once again fought back in impressive manner today, coming back from two sets down against Tommy Haas, finally winning the match 6-7(4), 5-7, 6-4, 6-0 and 6-2.

 

Roger was two sets and 3-4 down facing a break point when he recovered to hold serve and went on to win eight games in a row! He raced to level things up with a 6-0 demolition job in the fourth set and then broke twice in the final set. And with the chance to close out the contest, serving at 5-2 up with a double break, it took Roger just two match points to seal his place in the last-eight as a Haas return went wide at 40-30.

 

The victory was greeted by massive cheers on Philippe Chatrier Court as Roger is the hot favourite to win the title after Rafael Nadal was beaten yesterday. He will face either France's Gaël Monfils or American Andy Roddick on Wednesday.

Congratulations, Roger!

You did what we all thought you would: a rather short and relatively quick match; three sets in litttle more than two hours. A clear victory, so that there cand be no doubt about who's boss ;-)

I didn't see the match yet and

Trinimum127, lux lady, Filo and the rest... I couldn't agree more with you guys. I have a strong feeling and with my intuition being right 99% of the time, that Roger will lift the trophy come Sunday, rolling on dirt and crying his eyes and heart out when
