Going for 50!

11.08.2007 | Tennis

Roger hammered his 12th and 13th aces to secure a 7-6 (8-6), 6-2 win Saturday over Radek Stepanek at the Montreal Masters, moving within one victory of his 50th career trophy.

Our number one will be able to relax while second seed and hot rival Rafael Nadal and Serbian third seed Novak Djokovic prepare for an evening match-up to provide an opponent for the final. Roger will be playing in his fifth final in his last six events, the only blemish on his recent record from an upset loss to Italian Filippo Volandri in May at the Rome third round.

"I was very happy the way I played," said Roger. "It was a tough match with a lot of crucial points, a lot of shots played on reaction. I couldn't really dictate play. He kept coming at me, but I came up with some really nice passing shots when I had to."

Go get em, Roger!

Kia Ora Roger,
Congratulations on reaching the final and best of luck against Novak. The tennis is becoming more exciting with the likes of Nadal, Novak and others up there playing extremely well. However, I believe the 'cream always rises to the top' an

I'll be staying up (12 hour time difference) to watch the final and I know it will be every bit worth the effort.
