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.

cesardba, good to see your being so positive...

Why are players not penalized in TENNIS as they're in other sports?

ROGI, you show over and over again what a CLASS ACT you really are... on and off the court. CONGRATULATIONS, my Lord! Keep well and

Dear Roger

I just watched your match against Djokovic, and I must congratulate you on your spirit. It was probably not the way you would have wanted to enter a final, but I wish you all the best for tomorrow. I hope your serve remains effective tomorro

Should be able to play well against Rafa; he will need to be more aggressive & finish off points quickly. Rafa is very motivated going for his fourth consequtive title. Either way, whomever wins will be good, since both are good gentlemen.
