Roger in the semis

09.09.2005 | Tennis

Roger defeated Argentine David Nalbandian 6-2, 6-4, 6-1 Thursday night to meet Lleyton Hewitt in the semifinals of the U.S. Open. It was a clear step into the semifinals against Hewitt, a winner earlier in the day in a 2-6, 6-1, 3-6, 6-3, 6-1 victory over Finland's Jarkko Nieminen.


Roger beat Hewitt in the Open final last year and has won their last eight matches, four in Grand Slam events, going back to the 2004 Australian Open. "Maybe we had enough men's tennis over the last few days," said Roger, the only semifinalist who did not play five sets in the quarters. He didn't shy away from saying that he couldn't play much better than he did against the 11th-seeded Nalbandian in a 1-hour, 40-minute sweep.


Asked about the Agassi-Robby Ginepri match on Saturday, Roger said that he's happy to see two Americans in the semifinal. "This doesn't happen every day so you better enjoy this moment, " he said smilingly.

so, Lleyton has improved (his serve, return and unusually not just put the ball in play but found the line as well) LOL!!
That will be enough to beat any one but YOU..
Good Luck.............

Hi Roger:

My fingers will be crossed so hard for you to win when you play Agassi tomorrow that I know my bones will be sore. Just remember you have lots of fans across America. We may not be in that NY crowd but we'll be home cheering for you. Th

It was a complicated match, but you did a good woek, with aan amaizing tie brek.
Five set points you saved.
