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!

Federer totally deserves to be the world number one. He made it to all the grand slam finals and won two masters tournaments. I accept that it's not been a vintage year but over all Federer's performed the best. You say Federer doesn't deserve to be numbe

What horrible comments on here is what I'm thinking. We watched some brilliant tennis, and some amazing shots ! Davydenko's consistency saw him through and he deserved his win.
Roger has proved everything he had to in his career and achieved more than

It's a good loss indeed, it tells Roger top players around him have been progressing into entirely different level.

He cannot win matches easily with mere his weapons in his old days, more and more players will soon be there too.

He really needs to
