Nerves of steel

27.10.2006 | Tennis

Roger has reached the semi-finals of the Swiss Indoors tournament after a stuttering 6-3 7-6 win over Spanish fifth seed David Ferrer.

 

"I think I was trying to risk a bit more in front of my home crowd, so I'm just lucky that it paid off in the end," said Roger. Quite a large amount of errors by both players saw the Spaniard fail to convert six set points and Roger missing three match points before finally taking the tiebreak 16-14 when Ferrer slammed the ball into the net.

Roger will now meet Paradorn Srichaphan in the last four, following the unseeded Thai's 7-6 6-3 win over Argentine seventh seed Jose Acasuso.

 

"It's been a while since I dropped serve at the start of a match, so it was important that I reacted well."

The Swiss fans had double reason to cheer as Roger’s Davis Cup team mate Stanislas Wawrinka also booked a semi-final spot with a shock win over Argentine second seed David Nalbandian: 7-6 6-2.

Roger,

It was amazing to see you in play at the last ATP Masters in Madrid and now the Swiss Indoors. I wish you all the best and I hope you can wrap up 2006 with a win in Shanghai.

Congratulations Roger !!!!

You know it was really amazing and I enjoyed so much to see you playing the tiebreak, you showed us like in other similar matches that you are made of steel to face in the way that you played the last part of the second set.
