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.

I felt sorry for Gonzo when I saw the draw. That's got to be a player's worst nightmare, facing a rejuvenated and fired-up Hewitt on his home turf in the first round. Do you think they'll showcase that match in the daytime or at nig

Oh good!! If Agassi won both on more than one occasion, then we don't have to worry about some major superstition operating. And, as you point out, our Champ is not inclined to these superstitions anyway.

***marycorbin - Won't be a record for our Champ, as I think Agassi won both tournaments in 2000, 2001 and 2003.

Hope you're not working too hard.

Again, good night...

Hello Kuetschuek P 6

Your dream has come true! It is a Swiss final at Kooyong tomorrow

Stan played well -he has quite a lethal across court backhand hasn't he?
Much cooler here today, but there is much more wind--I am not sure what the forecast

You're right about the Kooyong/AO connection, or lack thereof, but I don't think Roger is superstitious, and he likes to start new records. :)

The only time he won Kooyong in 2005, he lost AO in SF to Safin.

However, I am in two
