Roger cruises through

24.11.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger also won his third match in London, defeating Mardy Fish 6-1, 3-6, 6-3 today - continuing his impressive run at the ATP World Tour Finals.

"I've played Mardy a few times and he's always very dangerous," said Roger after the match. "He takes the ball extremely early, serves great and can get on roll. I was worried in the third set. I thought I was going to lose today but I'm very happy. It's been a great run since the US Open - I've been all round the world but I'm still going strong. Hopefully I can make it a nice weekend."

Roger started the match with the same kind of efficiency that helped him beat Rafael Nadal in just 60 minutes on Tuesday - our champ had three breaks in the first set. In the second set, Fish found his rhythm and played strong at the net, finally holding his nerve to seal the set. But Roger immediately took control of the deciding set by breaking Fish for a 2-0 lead and closed out the match in an hour and 47 minutes.

Roger will now play the runner-up from Group A in Saturday's semi-final.

Hello Roger
Well done on winning RR3--Yes Mardy can be rather dangerous but you are more so! Some of your shot making has to be seen to be beleived.Having said that I give full credit to Mardy for the way he played not only yesterday but the whole year.
I would like to congratulate you on a wonderful post match interview--all players are very fortunate to have you as the president of their players council. A wonderful tennis player/athelete AND thoughtful of all players not only the top few.

This was not as impressive as the day with Nadal, but you managed to win however and this is what matters. You are in semis and Ferrer is on the way to the final.
It's going to be a tough match, because Ferrer is playing so well, solid and strong from the baseline.
I feel so positive about the match, since you've played extremely focused in London and you look strong and confident enough. Keep going and play magic.
Hope to see you in the final.
Always with you, champ. Come on! We believe in y
