Roger battles into semis

25.04.2008 | Tennis

Roger rallied from a set down to defeat David Nalbandian 5-7, 6-2, 6-2 Friday and advanced to the semifinals of the Monte Carlo Masters.

 

"This was my best match of the tournament. I was happy with my movement and the level of play was excellent," said Roger. "I could have served a little better but the statistics were good. David's a great player and a wonderful ball-striker. He has great movement and anticipation."

 

Nalbandian had won half of his previous 16 meetings with Roger, including the last two, and edged the first set without facing a break point. But Roger hit back in magnificent style, reeling off four games in a row to clinch the second set before sweeping to victory.

 

Roger will face Novak Djokovic in the last four.
