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.
