Semis in Toronto

14.08.2010 | Tennis

Roger showed an inspired performance against Tomas Berdych in Toronto to defeat the Czech 6-3, 5-7, 7-6(5).

"Today I just think I had a good start to the match, had chances in the second and then it was just kind of one of those matches I thought was going to slip away again like at the beginning of the season. But I was able to turn it around. It was definitely huge at this point," Roger said.   

It was a tough battle on both sides today, culminating in a thrilling last set. Roger had a fair bit of trouble in the beginning of the third as he slipped 2-5 behind. But he fought back hard, finally getting the break he needed with Berdych serving for the match at 5-3. The drama grew even more intense as the match went into a tie-break. Roger had a great streak just in the perfect moment, racing to a 4-0 lead and finally wrapping up the match.

Roger will now play Novak Djokovic in Saturday's semi-final.

Yeah, Ticky-p.27. All Fed fans are COOL, as our champ is! Cool as a cucumber, even under pressure. And I liked Roger's one-hand raise with the emphatic (but demur) "yes" when the Djoker netted the ball during the final break-point/match-point exchange.

Glad you're clickin' on all cylinders, Rog...it's been a while since you've been in one of these Canadian finals...Andy will be rested, but experience is on your side...time for you to snag #17 & then defending in Cincy to tie Rafa for the lead in all-tim

Congrats Rog on the great win!!!

I thought the match was going to be much shorter after the one sided 1st set but Novak managed to claw himself back into the match.

I thought you played well to keep your cool even though you should have won much ea

Fed-Fan-4ever. Perhaps its always going to be difficult for Roger on break points as these other players fight back so hard, and maybe have made some improvements in their game.? Little extra confidence perhaps? They also very hungry for titles, as so sta

Congratulations again, champ Roger, for the victory over Djokovic tonight.

All I ask now is TONS OF REST ahead of tomorrow's final!

Kiss the girls good-night, and get in your own quiet room just for a night! I'm sure Mirka will understand. Lifting

Roger, I am very happy that the game is finally over and that you won. I must say that somehow I do not like Djoko's style of play. Something not complete about it, always the same.
Thank God you won. It was a heart thumping crazyly and a nail bitter f
