LONDON---Roger Federer isn t the master of the
game anymore but he can still deliver when things
On the back of a poor season, the 17-time Grand
Slam winner showed that his winner instinct remained
intact as he came back from 3-0 down in the third
set to defeat Juan Martin del Potro 4-6, 7-6 (2), 7-
5 and reach the semifinals of the ATP World Tour
Finals for an 11th time yesterday.
More important than this impressive statistic, he
has the chance to prove that despite his aging legs,
aching back and recent lack of consistency he can
still beat his rival Rafael Nadal, his semifinal oppo-
"I just have to have the right mindset to give it
one last go, maybe play with a little less pressure
than I have in previous matches with him," Federer
said. "I just feel like I need to look at it more as being
an underdog a little bit because of circumstances,
because of my year, because of his year. Maybe that
free swinging is what I kind of need to do a little
bit more tomorrow."
The 32-year-old Federer has endured a tough year
and the elite event is his last chance to win a big
title in 2013. Federer has just four victories against
top-10 opponents in 2013 and has not beaten Nadal
since 2012. The top-ranked Spaniard leads 21-10 in
their head-to-head record, but Federer is 4-0 on
indoor hard courts, having secured all four wins at
the ATP Finals.
Nadal, who returned to tennis in February following
a seven-month layoff due to a knee injury, clinched
the year-end No 1 spot this week in a season in which
he won the French Open and the US Open. In London,
the Spaniard qualified from his group unbeaten.
"We know each other that well. He s going to do
exactly what he needs to do, I m going to try to do
what I need to do," Federer said. "Hopefully it s going
to match up good for me. If not, he deserves it. He s
had a wonderful season."
Novak Djokovic, who defeated Richard Gasquet
7-6 (6), 4-6, 6-3 in his final round-robin match to
extend his winning streak to 20 matches since his
loss to Nadal in the US Open final in September, will
take on debutant Stanislas Wawrinka in Sunday s
Federer won only the grass-court event at Halle,
Germany, in June. He regularly lost to unseeded
opponents and secured his qualification for the Finals
at the last minute. (AP)
