Roger ready to match Borg

17.06.2006 | Tennis

Roger moved into the final in Halle today with a 6-4, 6-7 (4), 6-3 victory over sixth-seeded Tommy Haas.

It was already Roger's third consecutive match over three sets - he is now just on victory short to equaling Björn Borg's grass-court record of 41 victories from 1976 to 1981.

"I could've — should've — closed it out earlier," Roger said. "Over all, I played pretty solid, but I didn't serve as well as I wanted. He converted only 2 of 16 break-point chances against Haas. "I returned well on the deuce side and had some difficulty on the ad side. Tommy either served better or I couldn't get the ball in play."

Roger will play Tomas Berdych, who defeated Kristof Vliegen, 6-3, 6-2, aiming at his fourth title in Halle. Roger holds a 2-1 edge over Berdych in their head-to-head meetings. Berdych defeated him in the 2004 Olympics but lost the next two encounters at the 2005 Hamburg Masters and in the French Open this year.

After all your hard work getting to the final, you deserve a straight sets victory. Still, we're prepared for three tie-breaks where you win two.

Winning the trophy would be nice, and tying Borg too - but the reward that will please you most will proba
