Semis against Stan

18.08.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger notched up a 6-3, 7-6(4) victory against Mardy Fish at the Cincinnati Masters and will now play his friend and Olympic doubles partner Stanislas Wawrinka.

“Playing an American here in America, it's always special. It was pretty straightforward. Whoever was going to be more aggressive, serve more consistent, and then play maybe a tiny bit better from the baseline was probably going to win. I'm happy I was that guy tonight.”

Roger showed an excellent tennis-display, breaking Fish on the first occasion with three impressive winners. He swiped his entire serves without any problems, winning 93% of the points on his first serve. He secured one more break in the last game of the set to clearly book it 6-3. Fish raised his level of play in the second set, but Roger was finally able to click the set in the tie-break.

Next up is Stanislas Wawrinka who sent Milos Raonic home in three sets. Roger holds a 10-1 record against Stan.

Congratulations on winning I did think Fish played well and glad to see him feeling better. but you of course were fantastic as usual. sorry you have to play your good friend today but of course I give you the edge as he is not a Roger federer.

Dearest Roger,
A great match you had against Fish. Good serves and good returns. I hope it will be exatctly the same today!
I also enjoyed your joke about kiss-cams in the interview after the match. You looked so relaxed and cute.
All my love,
Keiko

I'm still so thrilled with the memory of yesterday's (this morning's!) match. Haven't seen you return serve so well for the longest time. Rip some more tonight against your tennis buddy and show no mercy Roger. Only please keep your focus. All the best and lots of love and luck to you. GO FEDERER EXPRESS. xxxxxx

Great match! Fish could have been a dangerous player, but you looked in control the whole time! I think they said you had more backhand winners than forehands! Some amazing shot making & great serving too! Get to the finals to retain your #1 for sure! Wish we were there!

Great match v Marty - you certainly neutralized the power shots.
Much luck against Stan today. Should be interesting since you two know each other so very well. I was so thrilled to see Stan beat Raonic. I imagine you are glad you don't have to play against that serve monster.
