Second semi-final in 2010

07.05.2010 | Tennis

Roger successfully continued his quest for a second Estoril Open title today, moving into the last four with a 7-6(7), 6-2 victory over Arnaud Clément.

 

Roger got off to a bad start as his footwork clearly failed him. But just as we love him, he showed his mental resilience to fight back, winning the next three games to take a narrow lead. This mini-revival proved to be the turning point in the set - although Roger was never close to his best in what remained of the opener, he managed to edge past his opponent with the odd flash of brilliance. Roger then went on to take a 2-0 lead and finally picked up his rhythm at 3-1 up, hitting a series of whipped forehands that looked ominous for Clement's chances of recovery.

 

Roger will now play his first semi-final since January; he will face defending champion Albert Montañes (ATP 34). Roger has won all 3 encouters against the Spaniard so far.

Yep. We're getting used to defeats. Time goes by. Many of those who never won him win him. That's life as it is. Obviously nr.1 should not lose like this.

Playing as bad as this weeks the end of the number one is near. I hate Rafa Nadal, but unfortunately for me he will be the number one again because Roger cannot get any tournament

Horrible unforced errors. Powerless service. However many excellent opportunities for your forehand winners, and you miss them all. He was absolutely not a player at DJ's level. AND NOTHING too special from Montanes at all, and you lost.

Roger, are yo

Who is Albert Montanes? He is the defending champion of the tournament for one thing :)
