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.

Your matches are frustrating to look at now. I know the weather conditions are unbearable but you need to stay focus. Eat some more vegetables like eggplant, it gives me lots of energy when I am playing tennis

Well done Roger, you are still not at your best, you will have to play better against Hewitt he is playing really well.
Good luck take care
