Roger advances into semis

14.03.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger advanced into the semis in Indian Wells without any trouble, defeating Kevin Anderson (ATP 18) 7-5, 6-1.

 

Roger was fully in control once more, only having to defend a break-point once early in the match. Anderson's strong serve did not trouble our champ and he finally managed to break the South African in the last game of the opening set. With two more breaks in the second set, he wrapped up the match after 69 minutes.

"It was big to win the set and then to go on to break early in the second. Then double break was like a bonus. From then on I was home, basically. It was a really good match for me," Roger said.

Roger will now meet Alexandr Dolgopolov (ATP 31).

Roger, you do quite well in years when you have twins. It's great to read all the articles oozing praise of you again, and Mary Carrillo was just cooing over how great you were during the Anderson match. Another commentator said we were seeing the "2005 Federer model." Sounds good to me.

After all the talk and upsets only 1 newbie left with 3 guys that have made the final before. If fed can best dogo and djoko can beat isner, nothing will have changed. Maybe it will be 2012 final again, fed vs isner. Whatever happens at least 1 finalist will have been there before.biggest chance for dogo. Fed said they practiced a lot together in dubai. Hope that helps fed not dogo. Good luck to fed. All my hopes go with him.

peRFection!

Beautiful game and amazing shots Roger, well done! The way you closed the first set was great and then triple match point with an ace, awesome!

It was a good run on the doubles, good job guys.

All the best for the semis. Stand strong Roger.
Keep going!!!

Really glad you're healthy. Take care and have fun.
