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.

HEY ROGER, I THINK THERE IS NO NEED TO WISH YOU GOOD LUCK AGAINST HEWITT, CAUSE WHAT YOU DO HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IT! IN FACT I THINK IT WOULD BE APPROPIATE TO WISH HEWITT GOOD LUCK SO THAT THE FANS CAN ENJOY A GOOD GAME AND NOT A WALK IN THE PARK.

Fantastic, excellent, flawless!!! Everyone (including me) was in doubt after your match against Kiefer, especially with David being the next opponent, but you just went out and simply silenced everyone...

I bet that if you play like this in the semis,

Hi,Roger,
It was a good match and you were so focused on it.
Before the match, I was a little worry about you b/c you seemed to have some problems at the match against Kiefer. You looked a bit tired and sick.
and you weren't quite sure about your play

Well done Ro!. Go ahead, you'll be the winner! Best wishes!
