Roger just makes it through!

27.11.2009 | Tennis

Roger had to face a second consecutive defeat by Juan Martin Del Potro today, but has nevertheless qualified for the semi-finals at the World Tour Finals in London! Our champ lost 2-6, 7-6(5) and 3-6.

 

There was quite some confusion regarding the tournament regulations today, but it was eventually clear that Roger needed to win just one set in order to book a spot in the semis. Del Potro served excellently and also showed a strong display, especially in the starting phase. Roger battled to stay in the match and waited until the very last moment to make it to the next round as he fought back from a mini-break back in the tie-break to eventually convert the first set-point he had.

 

In the end, all came down to one game, with Roger winning the group and Del Potro pipping Andy Murray courtesy of his 45 games won to 43 lost, while the Scot's record read 44-43!

So Roger is a little rocky in the 1st set? Don't give upon him. Have faith!!!!

Yes, Federer made very bad fault, he has got married, so he should forget on beating these guys.

unacceptable 1st set vs davydenko

With his backhand under attack, that's tough : Roger need to give up his slice, speedy running to his left and make his backhand winner like what he did in his peak time.

I wonder if you would still think that Roger should have left the court when he wins this match.

Federer should decide between his family and playing tennis, because he will end like Agassi in his last time of tennis, but Federer will end like that in 28 years old.
