New best in Monte Carlo

21.04.2006 | Tennis

Roger continued his impressive form on clay as he swept into the semi-finals of the Masters Series event in Monte Carlo with a straight-sets victory over David Ferrer: 6-1, 6-3.

 

Roger and Rafael Nadal are now one match away from their first clash of the season after clinical wins in the Monte Carlo quarter-finals. Roger outclassed David Ferrer in just 61 minutes while defending champion and number two Nadal defeated Argentine Guillermo Coria 6-2 6-1 on Centre Court.

 

Roger clinched his quarter-final on his first match point dominating eighth seed Ferrer throughout. "It's my first tournament on clay but I have been practising with the French Open in mind for six months and I felt well physically today," he said.

 

Roger's semi-final opponent will be Ivan Ljubicic of Croatia or Fernando Gonzalez of Chili who were facing each other in the last quarter-final. "If I had to choose, I would pick Ljubicic because I defeated him everytime we met but both of them are playing well and it will be a difficult match," Roger said.

Roger, you are absolutely sensational. You've got nothing to prove against Nadal cos you are a more complete player. It is gives me joy as a big fan of yours to watch your progress on clay. Lets make it a bagel and two bread-sticks tomorrow so we can fina

Well done again! Just watched the semi, what a pity Gonzalez wasn't at his best but less tiring for you.
Very best wishes for tomorrow, sorry Gaudio didn't win but I'll watch the match although I get so annoyed with Nadal
