Roger reaches semis

12.11.2010 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger has reached the semi-finals of the Masters in Paris-Bercy for the first in his career thanks to a 6-1, 7-6(4) victory against Jürgen Melzer today.

Roger showed another terrific display, racing to a 3-0 lead in the first set and wrapping it up in a quarter of an hour. Melzer improved on his serve in the second set, taking it into a tie-break after no breaks on both sides. Roger had to recover from trailing 3-4, but scored 4 points in a row and thus securing his spot in the round of the last four. Roger had 18 aces and 33 winners overall today.

The victory also means that Roger will hold the number two ranking until the end of 2010. He will now play Gaël Monfils in Saturday's semi-finals.
