Semis at home

26.10.2007 | Tennis

Roger has moved another step towards defending his home-title with a routine 6-3 6-2 win over Germany's Nicolas Kiefer to reach the semi-finals.

 

"It wasn't easy today," Roger insisted after winning the final game to love. "My serve wasn't helping me out much with only the one ace near the end. But I was playing pretty solidly from the baseline and I hope I can continue that way for the rest of the week."

 

The result is very clear, even clearer than a week ago in Madrid, where Roger had won 6-4, 6-4 against Kiefer (ATP 64) in the semis. But the German certainly had his chances during the match, especially in the beginning. But Roger replied in his usual fashion, regaining his advantage on Kiefer's service game and displaying attractive tennis and even the odd little gag her and there.

Congratulations Roger on the win over Kiefer. The ATP website says that you are now the active player who has won the most matches. That's a great mile stone isn't it.

Good luck with your match against Karlovic. How tall is too tall? I know you kno

Yes, PHOENIXO, I agree that the change was noticeable at the Madrid tourny - I would guess Roger had upped his training/conditioning - it wasn't just the streamlined sports wear. Roger is looking GREAT right now, doesn't everyone agree? I get live video
