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!

MONO NOT ONLY HAS A PHYSICAL EFFECT , IT'S EFFECTS ON MENTAL STRENGTH ARE MORE PROFOUND AND PROLONGED , IT CAUSES MENTAL FATIGUE WHICH COULD LAST FOR YEARS

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

Very, very disappointing match from Roger. I can't believe he lost to a guy who's never beaten him in their previous 12 matches.

I guess he was tired after a very demanding year, so we can only hope that 2010 will be much better than the end of 2009.

HOW CAN FED CALL LUTHI HIS COACH , THE LEAST THING A COACH DOES IS PUT A GAME PLAN , WHICH DIDN'T EVEN EXIST TODAY !!!!!

FEDERER BETTER FIND A COACH IN THE OFF SEASON AND STOP BEING SO FUCKIN STUBBORN , IT'S COSTING HIM HIS CONFIDENCE FROM ALL THOSE LO

Roger,

Only one thing to say: GET A FULL COACH ASAP. Think about your last weeks, 4 defeats in 6 matches. Simply TERRIBLE. Hire a full coach, if you intend to continue to play in high level.

With respect,
Cesar
