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!

I see Roger has some "fair weather friends" as fans. That is too bad. I will never say one thing that is detrimental to Roger no matter if he wins or loses he is still the most wonderful person in the world to have accomplished as much as he has. Roger I

Hi Roger,

Well that was a very disappointing loss but it can't be changed now. I guess JMDP will win the tournament now, and that seems just silly and undeserved at this stage(or maybe Davydenko, but him winning seems really stupid too..he's a mid-ran

Disappointing that Federer didn't come out faster and take his chances when he had them. Anyway, you can't win them all, it's been a long hard and eventful season and to be honest he hadn't played enough tennis before the WTF.

Also you have to conside

Dear Roger
After this match you should sit down and think about your faults! You played under your ranking, you played awfully! That's why I am so sad now. I think all of us, who love you and believe in you, are so unhappy. Why, Roger, why? What is happe

returnoftheking said it right.
In the next year, Federer will be beaten by ball boy, everything is signalizating it.
