Federer edges del Potro at ATP World Tour Finals

Nov 9 2013, 8:14pm CST | by IANS

London, Nov 10 (IANS) Sixth seed and six-time former champion Roger Federer battled back from a 0-3 deficit in the third set to beat fourth seed and 2009 runner-up Juan Martin del Potro to reach the semifinals at the ATP World Tour Finals here Saturday.

London, Nov 10 — Sixth seed and six-time former champion Roger Federer battled back from a 0-3 deficit in the third set to beat fourth seed and 2009 runner-up Juan Martin del Potro to reach the semifinals at the ATP World Tour Finals here Saturday.

The Swiss former No. 1 won 4-6, 7-6 (2), 7-5 to finish in second position in Group B for a clash against top seed and 2010 finalist Rafael Nadal Sunday.

Second seed Novak Djokovic of Serbia, who had already qualified, beat Frenchman Richard Gasquet 7-6, 4-6, 6-3 in the other match to top Group B. The reigning champion will next face seventh seed Stanislas Wawrinka of Switzerland in the semifinals.

Nadal leads Federer 21-10 in their previous meetings and has won their past three matches.

"I was probably slightly angry more than thinking it's going to be over soon," said Federer, when asked about how he felt at 0-3 in the third set. "It's one of those moments today, because I kind of fought back the whole match -- the first, second set. Here we go again."

"I think I got two chances to win the match," said del Potro. "I broke his serve in the second set and in the third one. But he played great when I was up, and he deserved to come back in both sets. But at the end, when you have to be focus and find the winners, I made the mistakes and he was there really focused to take the chance. I think that was the key of the match."

Will We See a Novak Djokovic-Rafael Nadal Showdown at 2014 US Open?

Jul 18 2014 3:01am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

World Tennis Day London Showdown
It’s actually quite remarkable that Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have met in the U.S. Open finals as the top two players in the world in two of the last three years. While it should be the odds-on-favorite matchup, recent history shows that No. 1 vs. No. 2 rarely happens at the U.S. Open. What makes it so difficult for the top two players to endure to the U.S. Open finals? Conversely, why is New York’s final now unable to ...

Is Wimbledon 2014 Roger Federer's Last Chance to Win Grand Slam Title No. 18?

Day Three: The Championships - Wimbledon 2014
Wimbledon 2014 will not be the final time Roger Federer competes at a major venue, but is it the last time he will realistically have a chance to win his 18th Grand Slam title? Never mind that Federer is nearing his 33rd birthday (August 8) and that he is trying to become the oldest man to win a major title since Andres Gimeno in 1972. What else would he be playing for? The love of the game? The travel and the gr ...

Nadal vs. Murray: French Open Semifinal Is Must-Watch Match

Jun 5 2014 8:17pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Cast Of "Nashville" In Concert - New York, NY
When Rafael Nadal faces Andy Murray in a French Open semifinal, it will be a must-watch match for all of the obvious reasons. Both are top players in the world today, and the two of them have won five of the last eight Grand Slam titles.  But this match is also tantalizing for a different reason altogether—these two rarely do battle these days. While they met in the quarterfinals of the Italian Open—Nadal won a heck of a match—it was the first time they had actually played a match against ...

The Championships - Wimbledon 2014: Middle Sunday
It has been easy to forget that Novak Djokovic is the best tennis player in the world. He finished 2013 on a 24-0 run. His record this year is 24-3; his winning percentage is the highest among players on the tour. He has won three titles this year, all ATP Masters 1000 tournaments, the level just below the Grand Slams. He has beaten Rafael Nadal, his biggest rival, the world no. 1, the last four times they played — and those matches were not close. In the final ...
