Three sets and now the semis

18.08.2007 | Tennis

Roger had to struggle for his ticket into the Cincinnati semis, defeating  Nicolas Almagro 6-3 3-6 6-2.

 

Roger was unusually erratic as he dropped his first set of the week before recovering his poise to set up a clash with Lleyton Hewitt. "I actually think I played better today than I did yesterday," he told reporters. "The only problem was I had one really bad game which cost me the second set. I still thought my serving was good today and I hit better from the baseline."

 

Looking for his 50th career title, Roger broke in the sixth game but immediately dropped his serve before breaking for a second time to take the opening set.

Nice game Rog!

All the best for your game against Hewitt - since he is a worthy opponent, I am hoping you will keep it a 2-setter.

All the best!!

Dear Roger Federer: You have beaten Hewitt many times. He is like a barrom fighter--you can really see that quality when he and Roddick play together. It is like hurly-burly or wrestling tennis match. Hewitt is a scrapper, a sink- your- teeth- in fighter,

Congrates Roger for ur win. I saw it u were serving very good but seem exhausted and not tried to finish points too early. I know that very brutal conditions in Cincy. But Champ keep ur focus for Win. Best of luck for todays semi
