Roger+Federer+Rogers+Cup+eE-8t4WCzEQxCurse the time zones but here I am yet again with no time to write up my Toronto SF report. So with less than 3 hours to go till the final, I decided to summarize this post in bullet points. Without further ado, here we go!

  • Roger Federer defeated Feliciano Lopez, 6-3, 6-4 to reach the finals of the Rogers Cup!
  • YAY!
  • He played much better than the past two matches and cut down on the errors while still hitting some scintillating shots.
  • He even served better, though not as well as he would probably like.
  • He will play Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the final.
  • The H2H with Jo is 11-4 in Roger’s favour but don’t let that fool you. Jo has won important matches against him.
  • Jo has been playing the best he’s played in a long time right here in Toronto. It will be a tough match for sure.
  • Back to Roger, he has now reached his 120th career final.
  • This will be his 37th Masters final.
  • This is also his 5th Rogers Cup final.
  • This SF match was his 1,190th match and his 967th match win.
  • And last but not the least I believe Roger has already qualified for the World Tour Finals! Although the ATP hasn’t confirmed it so it’s not official yet.
  • This means Roger has now tied Agassi’s record of qualifying for the World Tour Finals for 13 years.
  • However, unlike Agassi, Roger has qualified for 13 consecutive years which is crazy impressive indeed!

So there you have it! My teeny, tiny random post. I leave you with this preview interview clip and also this special video clip which serves two purposes: 1. It illustrates how well Roger played and 2. It explains my title of this post, so go watch it NOW! ALLEZ ROGER!!!!

    • Thank you for your encouraging words! I’m so glad you visit the blog 🙂 Unfortunately as I mentioned in my latest post, the US swing is getting to be very difficult for me to follow for the conflicting timezones 😦 Still, I will try to write as much as I can. Hence your comment gives me even more enthusiasm. Thanks!
