Roger sweeps into semis

16.05.2008 | Tennis

Roger cruised into the semifinals of the Hamburg Masters by beating Fernando Verdasco of Spain 6-3, 6-3 today.


"I think I played well today," Roger said. "Fernando is one of those players you have to be always very careful of. He was a little bit more predictable today but made less unforced errors. That was his choice of tactics - I'm not sure if it was the right one."


Keeping up his good form on clay, and still to drop a set, Roger clearly showed the better performance against Verdasco. Their first encounter had been three years ago in Hamburg, where the Spaniard had his right foot taped after taking a 3-2 lead in the second set and didn't win another game.


Roger will face Nicolas Kiefer or Andres Seppi in the semi-finals.

I want to see a repeat of last year's match between Roger and Rafa only this time I want Roger to win in straight sets. Don't you agree??? GO RAFA (for now)

RAFA has broken for the last time, it's 5-2 now and he is seeing the finish line. Bravo Nadal, Djoko's ego is already cut in half, he will come out now and serve for the match, boy was it worth it afterall the hype, you bet

Rafa just broke the Djoker again, so he now has an insurance break to serve for the match.

OK I am going to say it. I have to admit that Djerko's behavior so far has been way above what I was expecting and his paying extremely strong considering what is at stake

I am sure Roger is being very calm about this match since he usually is that type of person. I would give a pretty to be able to watch this match on TV but since I can't I just have to bite my nails while watching the live scoring but I really appreciate

Rafa just managed to consolidate the break. Hopefully he can protect his serve for the rest of the match.

What am I saying? No, we want them to keep playing on and on.

Nadal going strong. Go, go and keep going, Rafa.
