Final number 99!

12.11.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger has reached the final of the Paris Masters for the first time in his career after a 6-4, 6-3 win over Tomas Berdych today.

After losing 3 of the last 4 encounters against Berdych, Roger left no doubts about his form today. He dropped just 10 points on his own serve, getting off to a brilliant start with stunning winners to break Berdych's serve and open a 2-0 lead. He then kept his aggressive opponent at bay with solid tennis and easily wrapped up the opening set. He broke again in the first game of the second set and never looked back, not facing a single break point in an 80-minute masterclass, which was completed with another break of Berdych's serve.

Roger will now play the winner of the other semi-final between Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and John Isner on Sunday. A win would be just the second time for Roger to lift the trophy in Paris - his only triumph so far is at Roland Garros at the French Open in 2009.
