Final no. 104

12.05.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger cruised past Janko Tipsarevic 6-2, 6-3 today to book a spot in the final of the Madrid Open. He will play Tomas Berdych in a battle for a third (after 2006 and 2009) Madrid title there tomorrow. 

Just like in the two prior rounds, Roger was never really in danger. He shook off the gusting winds to hit 25 winners and eight aces. He took a 3-1 lead in the first set after a first break, chasing his opponent around the court and later scoring another break to wrap up the opening set. Roger sailed on in just the same style in the second set and made everything clear after little over an hour. 

Roger will play his 104th final tomorrow, aiming for his 74th career title - and 20th Masters 1000 title, Rafael Nadal's record mark so far. Our champ leads the head-to-head against Tomas Berdych 10:4, but Berdych has proved he is very strong at the moment, not having dropped a set on clay this year so far.

Rogfedfan: you just can't handle it when you get nervous in the match. You need to spew out negativity and abuse. That's ok - you'll grow up.

Luck? Well, of course, sometimes you need it. But there's also talent and ability. And what would you call Djokovic's victory at the US Open against Roger then after he went for broke on that forehand at matchpoint? Skill?
