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.

O my God! Roger just could'nt get his rythym. He's out of Estoril. I very much hope Roger can get himself together before FO.

Roger Federer is not showing He is number One since Australian Open.

Why he press on him so much?
Why being the Greatest Still showing not confidence, errors and not clever plays in critical moments?

Come On Roger

Is there anyone who could answer the question: who is the next to beat Federer? I can't believe my own eyes: he had 5:2 in tie break and lost! Roger didn't want to play further, obviously! Who is Albert Montanes? He never won Roget, what does that mean no
