Roger's 80th victory this season

20.10.2006 | Tennis

Roger is right on track for his first Madrid Masters title after defeating American Robby Ginepri 6-3 7-6 in the quarterfinals. He notched up his 80th win of the year in comfortable fashion to set-up a semi-final clash with Argentine David Nalbandian.

 

Vying to become the first player in the Open era to win 10 titles in three straight years, Roger tied Ivan Lendl's 24-year-old mark of successive 80-win seasons with the victory. "It's great to get another win and it's a sign of the hard work paying off," Roger said. "I'm very proud to have walked off the court 80 times as a winner and only five as a loser. It means a lot to me."

 

Roger broke Ginepri in the eighth game on his way to taking the first set in 27 minutes. Both players held serve to take the second set to a tiebreaker in which Roger pressured Ginepri into three unforced errors.

 

Though Roger and Nalbandian have split their previous 12 encounters, the Argentine has only beaten Roger once since 2003 - in last year's Masters Cup final.

Congratulations Roger for your great win over your nemesis David Nalbandian in the Semi-final of Madrid Master Series. There is only one left who has better record than you - Rafal Nadal. Believe you can find the way to pass Rafa.

Dear Roger

I am not boring to say " Congratulations on your victory" It's not easy to get each victory.Each opponent improved his playing very well, such as Soderling with his incridible serve and Ginepri with his touch

Wel done Roger. Yet another nice record. Your hard work is bearing fruit. please keep it up not forfgetting your sportsmsnship. I get very disappointed when talented players lose their head in trivial thing. As usual just think of the next match and nothi
