Roger books final spot

05.11.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

It took Roger 88 minutes to defeat Stanislas Wawrinka 7-6(5), 6-2 in the semi-final in Basel tonight. He is now just one more win away from a fifth home title at the Swiss Indoors.

"It's always tough to play Stan," said Roger. "It's never easy. We know each other's game so well."

Roger took a quick lead, breaking Wawrinka in his second service game. Wawrinka fought back, though, taking the set into a tie-breaker. It was a bit of a scare at times, but our champ eventually won the tie-break 7-5. He left no doubts in the second set and wrapped up the match on his second match-ball.

Roger will face Kei Nishikori (ATP 32) in Sunday's final. The Japanese knocked Novak Djokovic out of the tournament today with an impressive performance.

I know you will not take things for granted Roger, but take care, this guy lifted his game enough to beat Nole. It is rare that some-one can do it 2 days in a row, but play your usual canny game and watch out for yourself. I really am looking forward to seeing you at your best and lifting that trophy. Wishing you fitness, energy,much focus, an excellent serve and lots and lots of luck! Allezzzzzzz
