Roger books last four spot

03.06.2009 | Tennis

Roger is only two more wins away from completing a career Grand Slam! He eased past France's Gaël Monfils in straight sets 7-6(6), 6-2 and 6-4 this afternoon to advance to the semifinals of the French Open.

 

"I was very nervous as I had not felt too well during the past matches and had not hit the ball that well. But this time it went well right from the start," Roger said and added: "I hope to play two more matches here."

 

Our champ was in control of his serve throughout the entire match and capitalised on the errors of Monfils to secure the victory. He placed just 57 percent of his first serves in play but won 80 percent of those offerings and never had his serve broken. In comparison Monfils’ serve was broke by Roger on three of five opportunities.

Roger did have to save a set point in the first-set tiebreak before clinching it 8-6. He then marched on with a double break in the second and a last break in the ninth game in the third set which eventually brought him one more step closer to the only Grand Slam title missing in his collection.

 

Roger will play his fifth consecutive semi-final at the French Open against either Juan Martin del Potro or Tommy Robredo on Friday.

Congratulations Roger~~~
You won Del Potro finally, you also made me nervous and crazy again.
Actually I know it's difficult to do "more relaxing" during the match, but I think once you can be calm down, most of Superb Tactics you can also be done on

Congratulations to Roger!!! That was truly exhausting but worth every second. I unfortunately missed the last two sets because I had to take my son to music class, but a friend sent me text updates during the class! I will watch when Tennis Channel hopefu
