Roger flies into final

15.01.2009 | Tennis

Roger got in a good workout as he won the semifinal of the AAMI Classic today, holding off Spain's Fernando Verdasco 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (5) at the Australian Open tune-up event.


"I'll play enough tennis this week, it's better to be on the match court," said our champ. "The second set wasn't the best of levels, he was struggling with the sun and I couldn't capitalise." After advancing on opening day in 57 minutes against Carlos Moya, Roger said that going three sets was fine.


He will await the winner of Friday's Promotion round match at the eight-man Australian Open tune-up, which will see his Davis Cup teammate Stan Wawrinka face Chile's Fernando Gonzalez.

The AO draw is just out. Roger has Djokovic in his half. Nada has Murray and pretty much all the French players. I think it's a good draw for our Champ, though he could play Safin in the 3rd round.

Congratulations Roger on coming through a tough match. Verdasco is definitely on the rise, so it's good that you prevailed.

Good luck with the final match of this tournament, and with the AO!

Great job Roger!! I knew you could do it!

Looks like you are all set for the Australian Open. The draw is going to be announced today, I believe, and I hope you find it very easy.

Best luck to the man from Basel.

Lots of Love,
