Roger battles into semis

25.04.2008 | Tennis

Roger rallied from a set down to defeat David Nalbandian 5-7, 6-2, 6-2 Friday and advanced to the semifinals of the Monte Carlo Masters.

 

"This was my best match of the tournament. I was happy with my movement and the level of play was excellent," said Roger. "I could have served a little better but the statistics were good. David's a great player and a wonderful ball-striker. He has great movement and anticipation."

 

Nalbandian had won half of his previous 16 meetings with Roger, including the last two, and edged the first set without facing a break point. But Roger hit back in magnificent style, reeling off four games in a row to clinch the second set before sweeping to victory.

 

Roger will face Novak Djokovic in the last four.

I meant to write that "I just hope that none of Djokovic's fans will keep posting trashy comments on Roger's website anymore."

Dear Roger's fans,
I was happened to watch the match live online and would like to comment on Roger's asking Djokovic's parents to be quiet. I'm not sure what Djokovic's parents were shouting about from the side of the court but at that time, Djokovic's

I also like Tsonga. Let's hope we will see more of him in the near future and less of Djoko.
