Roger soars into semis

25.01.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger has reached his eighth consecutive semi-final at the Australian Open as he had little trouble defeating his Olympics doubles partner, Stanislas Wawrinka 6-1, 6-3, 6-3.

"I needed a good performance. We’ve played a lot in matches and a lot of practice together so there’s no secrets,” Roger said. “I had a good day today. I was able to mix it up. I’d like to say though Stan played an amazing tournament.”

Roger broke Wawrinka in the second game of the match, and made 77 per cent of his first serves - his best performance in the tournament to date. And our champ also held him to just one ace, keeping him from earning the free points on his serve that had helped in the previous rounds - Wawrinka had scored 24 aces against Roddick. As Roger broke to a 2-0 lead in the final set, Wawrinka showed his frustration by breaking his racket in two after pounding it onto the ground. Roger went on to easily finish the third set with his second match-ball after just 106 minutes.

As well as making his eighth Australian Open semi-final, it is Roger's 27th in Grand Slams since his first title 2003 in Wimbledon. Roger will either play Novak Djokovic (ATP3) or Tomas Berdych (ATP 6) on Thursday at 7:30 p.m.

Go home...relax and maybe reflect on your mental game... you so much need it! So passive...thats not your game! Worst exibition in a semi final grand slam since a long time! Oh and stop complaining when the things aren´t working for you...it doesn´t suit you! What a poorly performance...Awful! After this...if i was Paul Anaconne i would fire myself... Today, you would lose against an injured nadal and that says everything! Go home and work the mental game...

Your calling the GOAT with 16 grand slams a weak minded fool
