The season's last final - with Roger!

18.11.2006 | Tennis

Roger produced a masterclass of tennis today, beating world number two Rafael Nadal 6-4, 7-5, to reach the final of the Masters Cup for the fourth year in a row.

 

Our Swiss star produced an impressive performance to get past the fired-up Spaniard and will play either David Nalbandian, who beat him to win the title last year, or James Blake on Sunday.

Nadal had won six of the pair's previous eight meetings, but Roger dominated from the off and dictated the tempo throughout the match. He wrapped up the contest with a sublime crosscourt winner on his third match point after just under two hours to extend his winning streak to 28 games.

I just saw the delayed telecast. Vow. What a match!!! Nadal probably played his best in the recent past and still couldn't win a set against you. That's your greatness.
May be your team needs to tell this everytime you face him. Going by the emotions af

your semi-final match against rafael was brilliant. you both played very well and it was so nice seeing the respect you have for each other. you're both gentlemen of the game.

good luck against blake - that should be another thrilling match.
