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.

@rogfedfan1991: you are entitled to your own opinion as just we are. winning or loosing is nothing to Roger, he treats both equally the same. so should we, don't you think?
