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).

That second set made me a little late for work but I wouldn't have missed the joy of seeing you battle your demons on the court and fight through the letdown in the second set. It was so nice to see you having fun and always lovely to see Mirka cheering
