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.

Beautiful match, dear Roger, congratulations! And good luck for today, going for No.2!! Love you!

And I also love that BLUE COURT!!! Don't let them change the colour, it's simply gorgeous.... How well you play on it and what a lesson for the complainers that they should adapt as you and some others have done so well. I am so BORED with NEARLY EVERY COURT BEING SO SLOW, it isn't tennis. Thanks Madrid for making this so different.

104 finals is unbelievable! When you play so well, every little mistake gets magnified in our minds. It's only when we see the replay, we see how the "unforced" errors were actually so unimportant. Thank you and all the best for the final!

congratulations Roger on your win..and good luck in the final.
I hope however the blue clay is banished, as it was only ever about TV ratings and not to improve tennis. Nadal and Djokovic are quite right t complain
