It was a perfect story of never say die attitude, it was a perfect amalgam of perseverance, self-belief & fighting till the end that ensured Roger Federer reached his 11th semi-final in his 12th appearance at World Tour Finals, 2013 in a match that had every thing from emotions, tears, smile & finally a chest thump.

 

 

 

Roger Federer reached his 11th semi-final in the last 12 years at World Tour Finals as he rallied past Juan Martin Del Potro 4-6, 7-6(2), 7-5 in a nerve jangling round robin match that lasted for 2 hours & 26 minutes. As, both Del Potro & Federer were tied at 1 win each after 2 matches, so, this match was a do or a die for both Federer & Del Potro as Djokovic had already confirmed his place in the semi-finals after defeating Del Potro on Thursday.

1st Set

 

 

The Argentine got to a wonderful start breaking Federer's service in the very first game. Federer got on the board in the 3rd game. How ever on his next service game, Federer after a 40-0 lead, got broken much to the disbelief & anguish of majority of the crowd present at O2, London. Del Potro then had an easy service hold & got to a 5-1 lead as Federer was looking out of sorts.

Del Potro managed to break Federer's service in the 5th game with this tweener

 

 

At the change over, after Federer trailed by 5-2, he was seen viewing the big screen & that probably motivated him

Federer managed to hold his next service game in just 62 seconds to make it 2-5 & that was the turning point of the match for me. That game gave Federer the much needed confidence. He carried on with the momentum and managed to break the Argentine's service in the next game and then held his service to make it 4-5.

 

 

 How ever, the Argentine managed to serve out the set in the 10th game after saving 2 break points.

 

 

Del Potro won the first set 6-4 in 41 minutes

Federer's game improved after the first 6 games as he looked very flat in the first 6 games

 

 

Here's a quick look at how deep Delpotro's returns were in the 1st set

2nd Set

 

 

Del Potro got an early break once again in the 3rd game to get a 2-1 lead. Just, as we thought, Del Potro will run away with the match, Federer broke back in the 6th game to make it 3-all.

The next 6 games went on service and the 2nd set got to a tie-breaker

 

Tie-Breaker

 

Federer got the first mini break & then quickly to a 2nd mini & after the first changeover, lead by 4-2. Federer then got the third mini break & comfortably, served out to win the 2nd set tie-breaker 7-2.

 

 

 

Here are the 2nd set stats for you all -----

 

 

 

BYpC8tECEAAu4Ul.jpg

 

Federer won the set in 50 minutes as his first serve % for the set touched 71

 

 

 

Here's a quick comparison of how Federer's backhand looked like for the first 6 games and the next 16 games

3rd Set

 

 

Del Potro again got the first break & raced to a 3-0 lead. For the 3rd time in as many sets, Federer once again broke back in 5th game & then quickly made it 3-all.

The next 4 games went on service, here are a couple of screenshots of Mirka Federer just to let you know, how tensed it was for all including Mirka Federer during the match

During this phase of the match, almost 99% of the crowd at O2 was cheering for Roger Federer and much to every one's delight, Roger Federer broke in the 11th game to get to 6-5 lead.

 

 

1392004_218669834971399_1177566283_n.jpg

 

 

Federer then served out the set & the match in the 12th game with his 10th ace to win the nerve jangling set 7-5

Here are the overall match stats -----

 

 

 

BYpPrJGCIAAKfr9.jpg

 

Federer's game improved by leaps & bounds especially after the first 6 games of the first set & 65% first serves in for the match has to be said was an impressive performance.

 

 

Here are another set of manual stats kept by one of my friends Vitthal Mirji

 

 

 

1457612_573005312766337_697330611_n.jpg

 

Impressive, no? :)

 

 

This was Roger Federer's 15th win over Del Potro & Federer now leads the head to head 15-5 vs Del Potro.

Fantastic win for Roger.  I managed to deposit the family at a museum for the afternoon and rushed home to watch it :)  I'm feeling very proud of him and very proud to be his fan.  Looking forward to tomorrow whatever happens.  This match today was important!   Well done Roger, and alley! 

 

Oh and thanks of course for all the wonderful, wonderful pics and videos.

Thanks as always for your praise, I have been reading your posts about the family being there with you :). I can understand how difficult it is :). Even, I have to compromise on so many things to see matches & then to write all this stuff :). Have a great time...

Federer said to the Daily Mail newspaper, that the company sponsoring of his outfit is preparing his clothes for the season 2015.... 

 

This means that Federer will continue to play until 2015 !!

That was the most amazing match. A real roller coaster of emotions for Federer fans and no doubt even more so for Roger himself. From looking as if all was lost, he fought his way back into contention, not once but three times to take victory in what was a nail biting match. He can feel rightly pleased with his performance in managing to pull that off!


558941_619346058109013_957784222_n.jpg?d


Roger was certainly far more animated than I have seen before, talking to himself quite sternly at times when shots went awry to try and get back into focus. It emphasised just how much he wanted to win this match.

1456729_619345968109022_315425316_n.jpg?


I hope he has something left for the challenge he will face from Nadal tomorrow as, unlike Rafa, Roger will have no rest day to recuperate. Whatever happens the match today should be a tremendous boost to his confidence. He has to know what needs to be worked on in preparation for the next season and if he can just cut down on the unforced errors he will be a formidable player on the tour once again and I for one would not rule out another major trophy :)
