Aiming for 40 victories in series

01.03.2007 | Tennis

Roger defeated Novak Djokovic 6-3, 6-7 (6), 6-3 for his 39th straight victory and advanced to the semifinals at the Dubai Championships.

 

It looked like another clear win for Roger but then things did become a bit more difficult towards the end of the second set. But he then managed to make everything clear in the final set, breaking Djokovic to love to take a 5-3 lead. “I was very happy with the way I was able to finish the match,” Roger said – having made 52 unforced errors during the encounter.

 

Roger’s next opponent will be Tommy Haas, who is experiencing a great start of the year with 17 wins in 19 matches. He won the tournament in Memphis, played the first two rounds in Dubai and has now found back to great shape in the quarter final. Roger has played Haas nine times, the head-to-head is at 7-2; Roger has won their last six duels.
