Roger to meet Ljubicic in Miami final

01.04.2006 | Tennis

Roger needed only 59 minutes Friday night to reach the Nasdaq-100 Open final, beating David Ferrer, 6-1, 6-4. The defending champion, fell behind by 3-0 in the second set, but rallied to improve his record this year to 27-1.


"I played well, in the first set I didn't give him any chances," Roger said. "The second set was tighter, but his game suits me on hardcourt. I'm playing so well that it was tough for him from the start."


His opponent Sunday will be the sixth-seeded Ivan Ljubicic, who advanced to his first final in the United States by beating No. 3 David Nalbandian, 6-1, 6-2.


Roger has won his past six meetings against Ljubicic. Over all, he leads, 9-3.

You can do it roger! You can take ljubicic to the cleaners in 3 sets. Good luck but i doubt you will need it

it's a best of 5 and remember that beating the best is always easier in a best of 3. 5 sets is too much for a champion not to regain his momentum and class if something goes wrong. the title is yours to take.

Dear Roger:

You really are playing wonderful tennis right now. I will be watching tomorrow at noon -- on television unfortunately, but one day I hope to see you play live -- and hope for another amazing match from you. Don't lose concentration though
