Final in Cincy!

21.08.2005 | Tennis

Roger stretched a two-year winning run against Americans, recovering to post a 4-6, 7-5, 6-4 semi-final victory overnight over Robby Ginepri at the ATP Cincinnati Masters.


ROger, now 63-3 on the season, has not lost to an American since going down in 2003 to Andy Roddick in the Montreal semi-finals. Later, the fifth-seeded Roddick was putting a 1-6 record against Australian Lleyton Hewitt on the line in the second semi-final.Roger will take a run of triumphs in his past 21 finals into Sunday's clash during his first and only preliminary event prior to a US Open title defence starting a week from Monday.


Roger stretched a win streak to 17 consecutive matches since his semi-final loss to Rafael Nadal at Roland Garros on June 3. He last lost a final in 2003 at Gstaad against Jiri Novak. The victory boosted him to 37-1 on hard courts in 2005.

Great to see you in another final!

Yesterday I saw the "Miami final-clasch" between you and Nadal for the first time at a video tape. What a tremendous battle that was. My respect and admiration to you will never stop from now on. Nadal is strong, tala

No player I appreciate more than Federer but I think pointing out Roger's run "against Americans" is off color. Makes it sound like a Swiss v. America issue. It's a very strange comment coming from Roger's website and not like him at all. Roger's dipl

Roger it was so frustrating to watch you in the first set yesterday because i knew you could play better but you put the heat on when it mattered most and im so glad that you are in your ninth final of the year. Normally i would say with your head to head
