Roger fights back in style

22.11.2009 | Tennis

It took Roger just under two hours on the opening night at the ATP World Tour Finals to defeat Fernando Verdasco 4-6, 7-5, 6-1.

 

Roger did not find his rhythm in the starting phase of the match. He opened with a double fault and did not win a single point in his opening game. He had trouble coping with Verdasco's sliced serves at first. But Roger committed a lot less unforced errors in the second set and he finally had break-points himself at the very end of the second set - which he made use of straight away. He then carried on the Federer-way: taking the next five games and finally the match in masterly style.

 

Roger will play his next match on Tuesday against Andy Murray who won his opening match against del Potro.

I knew you can turn this around.You played some magic shots tonight.
I want to ask if Fed is in semis now or he has to win against Delpo to qualify?And will he remain no1 after this win?

Ha-ha, very funny ... it will definitely work if we make him feel like he is behind! Sometimes it seems he gets disinterested if he wins too easily!
