Roger battles into semis

22.10.2010 | Tennis

Roger recovered from a rough start today to beat Swiss compatriot Stanislas Wawrinka 2-6, 6-3, 6-2 at the Stockholm Open. His 50th victory this year also means he will now play his tenth semi-final of the season.

 

Wawrinka had a terrific start as Roger had to face breaks in the first and fifth games making some uncharacteristic errors. Trailing 0-2 in the second set, Roger came back in terrific fashion with some great winners to break Wawrinka twice and take the match into the third set. Our champ then raised the level of play even further to bring the match to a clear end after 107 minutes.

 

Next up is Croatia's Ivan Ljubicic (ATP 17) on Saturday.

Anybody know what time Roger plays today USA time (East coast)? I am watching the match between Niemenin and Mayer, it is very very close. I think Roger comes on just afterwards, but not sure.
