Semis in Dubai

01.03.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger sneaked past Mikhail Youzhny 6-3, 6-4 today to reach the semi-finals in Dubai.

"I just played well on my service games", Roger said the match. "I think the speed of the courts here helps with that. I think I also have a good focus this week. So I have to keep it up if I want to win the title," he said.

Just as in the last two matches against Llodra and Lopez, Roger was dominant on serve. So he needed just one break of serve to cruise through the opening set - in 32 minutes. Another break in the first game of the second set secured Roger the 12th win over Russia's Youzhny.

Our champ will either play Juan Martin Del Potro (ATP 8) or Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (ATP 5) on Friday for a place in the final.
