Brilliant Performance

17.11.2007 | Tennis

Roger crushed Spanish rival Rafael Nadal 6-4 6-1 to reach the final. Roger, chasing a fourth Masters Cup title in five years, took just 59 minutes to see off Nadal in his most emphatic win over the world number two to date.

 

Our star, who also beat Nadal in last year's Masters Cup semi-finals, broke through at 5-4 in the first set, smashing a forehand down the line to seize the initiative.

Roger won 20 of 21 points from 4-4 in the opening set. He turned the screw in the second, breaking for 2-0 by forcing Nadal into a forehand error. Worse followed for Nadal, a double-fault gifting Roger a 4-0 lead and the defending champion delivered the coup de grace with a thumping crosscourt forehand.

Roger will play Nadal's countryman David Ferrer in tomorrow's final.

That was amazing! In only 59 minutes, Nadal was made into pulp by your brrilliance! You totally thrashed him! Good luck tomorrow against Ferrer and I'm sure you're going to win 6-0, 6-0, 6-0, or something close to that. You are the beast!

Simply magnificent Roger. Congratulations.

You took the match to him, attacked from the outset and it was great to see the "pretender" put in his place. H2H is getting better and better (Fed 6- Nadal 8, I think!!!)

Can't wait for tomorrow morn
