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.

Dear Roger
You may have lost the 2nd set, but more importantly you got the big W - congratulations. At least you're still out there battling in that heat and humidity.
Best wishes for your match against your old adversary Lleyton, thank goodness it won

I forgot to say - I am so sick of commetators who keep saying that Roger is behind Nadal in the Race - he has played fewer matches so that would be expected!!! It does not mean that Roger is not better than Nadal - we all know who is the best!!

Roger will have to be at his best against Hewitt who is playing extremely well this week. I know he beat him last week but Roger is not playing his best tennis this week.
Wishing him good luck, I'll be watching.

'Unusually erratic'? Whatever that means, glad to hear you fought on and came through; it must be tough. Good luck against Little - we know you can do it!!

congra rogy
it is always difficult to maintain the same level in all the games round the year. So you really did quite well. Never lose your confidence and always be superior psychologically! This advice is from a fanwho has been medical practitioner bef
