The perfect Final: Roger vs. Nadal

15.05.2010 | Tennis

Roger defeated Spain's David Ferrer 7-5, 3-6, 6-3 today to set up the dream final against Rafael Nadal in Madrid, just like last year.

One of the keys to Roger's success today was certainly his serve - he dropped just two points on his own serve in the first set and a break in game 11 helped him secure the set in a little over 45 minutes. Ferrer broke Roger in set number two, taking the fourth game and continuing strong in order to force a decider. Roger then managed to raise the pressure in the third set and secured the vital break of serve in the eighth game. He showed a few more terrific points before closing out the match with an ace and with it a fourth Madrid final in five years.

Sunday's final will take place earliest at 6.30 p.m. (local time). Roger and Rafa had met each other in the final in Madrid last year, the outcome then was 6-4, 6-4 in Roger's favour. Our champ has the chance to improve his negative 7:13 head-to-head against the Spaniard and could win his 17th Masters-Series-title; Rafa on the other hand has the chance to make it his 18th.
