Roger to face Fish in final

22.08.2010 | Tennis

Roger is only one more step away from defending his title in Cincinnati after defeating Cypriot Marcos Baghdatis 6-4, 6-3 in the semi-final.

 

"After Wimbledon I had six weeks to work on a few things. On the hard courts it's nice to play forwards and not always be defensive and let the other guy dictate," Roger commented. "I'm happy that the hard work is paying off right away."

 

Roger showed an almost perfect match against Baghdatis. He dropped only three points on his first serve and showed a more aggressive game as he approached the net more often. Roger was also very efficient when it came to scoring the necessary points, making use of just one break-point to secure the first set, the second set was over just as fast - the match totalling to a mere 70 minutes.

 

Our champ will meet Mardy Fish (ATP 36) in Sunday's final. Roger leads the head-to-head 5-1, but the American beat Roger in their last meeting in Indian Wells two years back.
