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.

Hello Roger,
Spectacular high speed tennis from both of you! I wish I could have watched the match live, because I would have wanted to see those rallies and that footwork in the right perspective. You didn't allow Mardy to get one single breakpoint on your serve and you looked focussed and determined as in your previous matches. A man on a mission. Stan is on a roll as well and one thing is certain: there will be a Swiss in the final tomorrow :-). Good luck to both of you later today!

Hello Roger
What a wonderful match, especially the second set where [as you mentioned in your interview] Mardy serve improved[certainly did!] and you played better--some superb tennis from both players--also movement & footwoork from both of you excellent.Very pleasing to see Mardy playing at his best again following his recent illness. My dream of an all Swiss S/F has come true
Wishing you both all of the very best
Kindest regards
