Haas withdraws: semis for Roger

21.03.2008 | Tennis

Roger has advanced to the semis with an unexpected break in Indian Wells as Tommy Haas forfeited his quarter-final due to a sinus infection.


Haas had started into the tournament very well after his comeback since his third shoulder-operation. It is already the second time in series he was not able to challenge Roger on court: he also had to pull out of the encounter in Wimbledon last year.


Roger will face the winner of the David Nalbandian-Mardy Fish match. The other men's semifinal pits defending champion Rafael Nadal against Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic.

Dear Roger,
Just saw Mardy defeat you. Something other than an illness is afftecting you. Something your fans are not privy to. Hope it gets resolved soon so that you can get your focus back. As always, you will be in may prayers daily.

Kia Ora Roger,
Hard luck Roger, and how this loss to Fish must be a huge disappointment for you. However, this can only be fuel to make you hungrier for those sweet victories to come. Good luck and all the best in your preparations for the next upcoming

Dear Roger,
I'm sorry you had such a bad match. I guess you had a relapse and weren't feeling well.
I hope you get better soon. We're pulling for you.

It is not like you to be fragile. The fact that you didn't meet stronger opponent in this tournament to semi may not be a positive factor to today's result. To be honest, I was not feeling good in your match with Ljubicic when you argued with the judges.
