Roger vs Rafa in Monte-Carlo Final

21.04.2007 | Tennis

Roger will meet two-time defending champion Rafael Nadal in a repeat of last year’s final at ATP Masters Series Monte-Carlo on Sunday.

 

He recovered from a slow start to beat No. 16 seed and former two-time champion Juan Carlos Ferrero 6-3, 6-4. He fought back from a 3-1 first set deficit by winning seven games in a row on a sun-drenched day at the Monte-Carlo Country Club. He sealed his seventh career win in ten meetings over Ferrero in one hour and 25 minutes.

 

"I think I'm playing good in defense and offense. I'm returning pretty good. Usually for me for some reason that's the hardest part on clay. Should be the easiest because the surface is the slowest, but I've always had issues early on in the clay court season where I just feel that my returns weren't good enough. But I feel good and I feel like I have options to play on clay. My serve is coming along nicely, too. So, yeah, I'm happy the way I'm playing, " Roger said.

 

Roger, who will attempt to win his third title of the year, will next meet Rafael Nadal. The world number two and claycourt king defeated 10th seed Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic 6-0 7-5 in Saturday's semi-finals.

fellow Federer fanatics. this is an SOS--there is NO tv coverage of this match in the USA and I'm wondering if anybody found a link to radio coverage on the internet. I listened to the Australian open by internet radio and it was quite entertaining. watch
