Almost there!

27.10.2007 | Tennis

Roger will take a 7-0 record and the fervent support of a sellout hometown crowd into his Sunday final with Jarkko Nieminen at the Swiss Indoors.


"It's an almost perfect scenario," said Roger as he looked ahead to Sunday's final. "I'm really happy with how the week has gone after a bit of a scare in the first round."

"Today's match was a lot like my (7-6 7-6) match against Karlovic in Montreal with very few chances to break. Now I just hope the home crowd can help push me to the finish tomorrow."


Roger held his nerve in a steady win over huge-serving Ivo Karlovic, holding the Croatian to just 16 aces to advance 7-6 (8-6), 7-6 (7-5) in today’s semi-final. He will next meet Finland's Jarkko Nieminen, who earlier had posted a 7-6 (7-4), 6-2 triumph over Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus.


"Roger's the favourite in every match he plays," said Nieminen. "I have lost to him seven times so I'm going in with no pressure. I have nothing to lose. I'll give my best and hopefully the match will go well for me.”


Roger will be looking to reinforce home pride as he bids for a seventh title of 2007 from 11 finals this season.

If you liked the RF logo hats that Roger wore this year at Wimbledon and the USO, and can't seem to buy one - do check out the RF hats petition thread on the English ‘Roger Off Court’ forum here at RF.com (link: www.rogerfed
