Roger Reaches Final!!!

02.04.2005 | Tennis

Roger's near invincible talent pulled off a 6-4, 6-3 victory. He will play 18-year-old Rafael Nadal of Spain in the final on Sunday. Nadal beat David Ferrer of Spain, also by 6-4, 6-3, in the earlier semifinal.


"I think he played really well and I had to come up with the right shots at the right time tonight," Roger said. "I really felt the heat out here tonight." The victory improved Roger's career record over Agassi to 7-3, and Roger has won their last seven meetings. Playing in his 20th year on the men's tour, Agassi, who will turn 35 on April 29, has never lost seven consecutive matches to any opponent.


Roger, has a 48-1 record since the beginning of the 2004 United States Open. He has won four tournaments this year, and his only loss came in the semifinals of the Australian Open in January, when he lost to the eventual champion, Marat Safin.


Roger's opponent in the final, Nadal, will supplant Agassi as the youngest finalist in this tournament. Agassi was 19 when he won his first title here in 1990.
