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.

Please, Roger, give us what we're waiting for. Having you in the final would be the best news we could ever hear about. Do what you best know to do. Please, please, and once again, please. It's the perfect time to show everyone that Roger Federer can write another piece of history with golden handwriting. Melbourne is the best place to do it.

All the very best, champ. Forever with you. Feel that every single fan you have all over the world is with you on court tonight.
Come on.

It's going to be such a tough match, obviously, but there's still the best Federer at one side of the net. If you manage to play as best as you can, the game will be a marvellous chance to claim for a place in the final on Sunday.

After that, I just want to wish you loads of good luck, because I know the game is gonna be heartbreaking, but I'm pretty sure you'll do a wonderful display on court. All the best for tonight, and I hope to see you in the final. We'll be supporting you. C'mon, Roger!

Good luck on the Semis, Roger! Even though I am not a Rafa fan, I felt sorry for the way in which his dream came to an end. I am happy that your fans are just as classy as you are in not bad-mouthing Rafa in this tough time. I am sure Djokovic would try to move you around and take you out of your comfort zone: you are the better aggressor between the two of you and you will keep him running all the way to Serbia. Great serve and backhand-down-the-line are all you need to finish him off.
