Into semis with a straight set win

21.08.2010 | Tennis

Roger has made it into the semi-final in Cincinnati thanks to a straight-set victory against Nikolay Davydenko. He defeated the Russian 6-4, 7-5 while Rafael Nadal lost to Marcos Baghdatis.

 

"It was a bit - not scary - but a bit, 'Do I have enough play on these kind of courts in a match moment?' So I was really hoping to kind of get a decent match in today, play solid, and come through and then feel really like I am really in the tournament," Roger said. "Because before it didn't really kind of feel that way."

Although he converted only three of 11 break points, Roger fired 12 aces and won 83 total points to Davydenko's 72. Roger was able to improve to 7-2 in quarterfinal matches this season and 14-2 against Davydenko. It took Roger just under 100 minutes to complete the victory.

 

Roger's semifinal opponent will be unseeded Cypriot Marcos Baghdatis, who beat Rafael Nadal, 6-4, 4-6, 6-4 in a match that took over two hours and 30 minutes to complete.
