Roger in the semis

20.08.2005 | Tennis

Roger didn't look his sharpest, but cruised into the semifinals Friday in Cincinnati, defeating unseeded Argentine Jose Acasuso 6-4, 6-3 in just over an hour.


"I'm No. 1 in the world, so I don't want to give away wins just like that, as presents," he said. "I want to make sure when I'm playing, I'm on, and when I'm not feeling well, I don't play. Like in Montreal I didn't feel like I was ready yet. So I'm very happy to see that when I come here, I feel like I'm ready."


In the semifinals Roger will face unseeded American wildcard entrant Robby Ginepri, who routed a knee-addled and frustrated No. 4 seed Marat Safin 6-2, 6-3 in under an hour.


"I didn't practice for one month and a half and I played three matches in a row and today I felt really, really tired on the court," said the racquet-smashing Safin, his knee covered by an ice bag after the match. "I couldn't move properly and I couldn't find my game. My timing was not there. So it's really difficult to play against any player."

Hi Sir Roger,

I guess its late night sleep again for me tonight coz i dont want to miss your game with Roddick. I do know that Roddick is such a good tennis player and he usually put up a good fight in all his games, I just pray that you'll exceed what

I've been waiting for the webteam to post this news since I found out yesterday that you'd defeated Acasuso!!! Sadly, I didn't see your match at all, but the important thing is, indeed, you are closer to winning this tournament.

Of course, as I write
