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.

Me too. Fish hasn't had many chances to break either so at least the serve is working well so far xx

@boting

you are right his rhythm is a problem today. Also Fish is playing the match of his life as everyone tends to do against Roger

Luthi has travelled with Roger as his part time coach for a number of years. He is a permanent part of his team. Roger took on Paul Annacone as a coach on a trial basis. He has worked with Roger for several weeks,he was with him in Toronto b

La Fed's playing really well on his own serve and holding easily, but it's horrible when he's returning. He can't return either Fish's first or second serve
