Roger vs. Rafa for the third straight time

26.04.2008 | Tennis

Roger has reached the Monte Carlo Masters final after Novak Djokovic retired due to illness. Our number one was leading 6-3 3-2 when the Serbian third seed complained of dizziness and pulled out of the semi-final.

Roger  was back to his brilliant best in the first set against Djokovic. He saved three break points in the fifth game before stealing Djokovic's serve on his first attempt to open up a decisive 5-3 advantage.

"I think I served a bit better today," said Roger. "I served well when I had to and I was consistent from the baseline. "Tomorrow, I will try to push him (Nadal) to see what happens."

ROGER!!! Your best was much better than Nadal's, much more creative and beautiful. But, it is so difficult to maintain that level when he is a machine! God, to see you work some points to perfection and have him find a winner in the end must be very fr

I was sorry about your loss to Rafa today but Roger there is much more tennis to be played and I am sure all will well in the next tournaments. Just get some rest, have a pow-wow with your coach and keep a good thought. This is not the end of the world an

On clay, it ain't over until it's over. Players can be 5-1 down in a decider set, and end up winning matches. Federer lacks consistency on clay and he cannot afford to lower his mental intensity against a grinder such as Nadal even when he is up 4-0. He h

Dear Roger,

You can do better, but it was OK - it was so close ! I am sure the next time you'll win !! C'mon fans, don't be disappointed - it is 75 75! He will learn the lesson to convert 40 into a victory next time. The good thing is he has 40 pla

It is a little dissapointing now, but it was a good tournament at all. Roger is playing better and better and the cooperation with the new coach is good for him.
Roger must have more confidence to win RG than he had today. I hope he will defeat Nadal in
