Semis against Kiefer

20.10.2007 | Tennis

Roger eliminated Spain's last player in the Madrid Masters at the semi-final stage as he defeated Feliciano Lopez 7-6 (4), 6-4.

"I couldn't break early on, I was starting to get a bit concerned," our top seed commented, now 57-6 on the season and 6-0 in the series. "But I think I got the upper hand quite early, after five or six games. I was playing well from the baseline, but it would have been nice to break. He served well and only game me one or two chances. He got frustrated midway through the second and gave me the free points I needed to finally break. Otherwise, it would have gone to another tiebreaker."

It was quite a tough fight between Roger and the big-serving Latin lefty Lopez, who has now lost all six of his meetings with our star. It took one hour, 36 minutes for Roger to prevail for his 57th win over the season as he chases a seventh 2007 trophy. He will next meet Germany's Nicolas Kiefer in the semi-final.

Roger advanced just a few hours after home hero Rafael Nadal was embarrassed by David Nalbandian in a first-time meeting. The South American stunned Rafa 6-1, 6-2 to produce his best showing this season.

Goodluck, Roger! I hope you get past Kiefer in the semis to meet Nalbandian in the finals. It will be a re-match of your epic battle during the Master Series championship in Shanghai in 2005 and I will certainly look forward to you winning this time aroun

Well done Roger! Feli is a tough opponent to break, but you were never in trouble with your own serve. The outcome was never really in doubt.
Beware with Kiefer, he seems to be on fire this week. But you didn't reach the semis to have it easy. Just anoth

I have the same opinion with the fan SLAURA in US about Roger:

'' You are uplifting so many people and INSPIRING them to do better in their own lives-- ME included.
Nothing you do is WASTED.
Your tennis, your grace, your intelligence is once in a L
