Almost seven

20.10.2007 | Tennis

Roger downed Nicolas Kiefer 6-4, 6-4 with a convincing display in Madrid today. He has now won 18 straight and 28 of his last 29 matches, including Davis Cup activity and is an incredible 58-6 for the year.


The level of tennis was excellent at times, with Roger playing almost without errors. He hit 10 aces and had a total of twelve break chances. It was Roger’s eighth victory against Kiefer in series; he is now 9-3 against the German.


Roger will meet David Nalbandian in Sunday’s final. The Argentinean slipped past the third-seeded Djokovic in the semis. "My last indoor loss to him was Shanghai 2005 in the (Masters Cup) final," Roger said. "That was a heartbreaker. We've had good matches in the past, and he beat me in Basel. Nalbandian's one of the best returners in the game, it's nice to see him coming back strong. I'm hoping for a good match and I hope I can serve well again."

I was following the match on the web. Seems like an excellent first set. Once Roger was broken early in the second set, all hell broke loose. I'd say, it may not have been a bad thing if Roger had been broken once or twice in the previous matches. This wa

Dear Roger,
I think not losing your serve until the 2nd set of the final is very impressive. It is a shame you were not able to play better in the last 2 sets. Perhaps, the outcome was due to your preparation/competition leading up to the final was not a

Sorry to see you lose in the final. Similar things happened in Cincinati when you played very well in previous rounds but not so well in Final.

We will support you forever though and I am sure at the end of the year, you will look back, sort out the t

I just saw on the computer watching the scores that Nalbandian came out on top in this match and I was so sorry to see this!!! But don't worry Roger you will bounce back like you always do and no one can win all the time. We still love you and will be wat

Dear Roger,

You need a coach. You are human, as everybody else. Please, contract a coach to avoid you lost games as this today.

Previous in this season I was afraid that you will lose the #1 for Nadal, but as Nadal is not playing very well during th
