Final vs. Hewitt

04.01.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger has booked a spot in the Brisbane final after a 6-3, 6-7(3), 6-3 win over Jérémy Chardy (ATP 34).

Roger broke the Frenchman in the second game of the match, taking a 2-0 lead which he maintained to take the set. Neither of the players managed to score a break in the second set and it was Chardy who eventually claimed the set in the tiebreak (3-7). Roger secured another break towards the end of the decider, taking a 5-3 lead and then wrapping up the victory on his serve to love.

Roger will now meet an old rival - Lleyton Hewitt (ATP 60) - in Sunday's final.

Roger had already played Jérémy Chardy in the doubles the day before, Roger and Nicolas Mahut defeated Chardy and Grigor Dimitrov 7-6(3), 6-7(5), 11-9 in a tough match.

@K3,

Yes I've been watching the whole match, and that's what I thought!
Roger's serve hasn't been broken all tournament, and it was broken 3 times in the first set today!

@Casper,

Because he's the no 1 seed at Brisbane.

HE'S ARRIVED! I think he was extremely tired and maybe had some muscles sore, his legs ... he wasn't in the first set walking or bending his legs properly. Maybe, I'm no doctor, just love him and pay lots of attention on him! Come on, my dearest Federinho!
