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!

Hi Roger

In the first 2 your serve games you only managed 1 out of 10 first serve in. To play Djokovic you need to improve your first serve like you did in Wembledon final. That's the key to win the match against Djokovic who has improved lot since you

Good to see you in the finals. I wanted you to beat Nadal to win this cup. But, I wish you all the best in beating Djokovic. He played superb against Nadal and you will need all the energy to beat this young guy.
You have beaten him every time. Go, get

Another great match although very different in the way Stepanek plays. Djokovic will be tough but I think you will have little problems when it comes down to the crunch. Good luck champ xxx
