Hamburg semis

18.05.2007 | Tennis

Roger went through a mid-match low before getting his 15th straight win at the Hamburg Masters on Friday, 6-3, 4-6, 6-3, in the quarter-finals over Spain’s David Ferrer.


By winning in 1 hour 46 minutes in front of a large 10,000-strong crowd, Roger also kept his perfect record against Ferrer. He has won all their seven meetings, but Friday marked the first match in which he dropped a set against Ferrer.


Roger was in command early on, taking the first set with two breaks. But he was derailed in a second set which saw seven breaks of serve, with our star dropping serve on four occasions and ending the set with a backhand error.  Luck and experience brought him back on track in the final set. A netcord and an ace allowed him to hold for 4-3, he broke for 5-3 in a long game and then served out the match at love in the next game.


In the semi-finals, Roger meets either Serbian teenage sensation Novak Djokovic (ATP 6) or Spain's Carlos Moya (ATP 36).

congrats on your win against ferrer. doesnt matter he won a set - had to happen some time. as long as you come out the winner in the end that's all that counts.

got a little shaky there on the 2nd set which worried me that you were not able to close

Congrats, man. I must admit I was very nervous when you lost the second set, but you prevailed and won a tough match against one of the best clay court palyers. Now against Carlos Moyà, but he must be tired after his match against Djoko (remember he's 31.

Hi Roger, great match, good to see you smiling again, I also noticed quite a repetoire of shots this time around on the clay i.e. drop shots, backhand slices, few forehand errors and serve was much more consistent. Please take note of the following commen
