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,

You did not make my Sunday, but it does not matter. Nadal is still too strong for you in the clay courts. Course that we all believe that you can beat he, and if fact you have your chances today, when you were winning by 4x0.

Take some rest,
