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.

Personally, I don't really sympathize with Djokovic, neither, but you guys are really rather harsh on him. He's still a kid in some sort of one, one who's taken a huge leap within so little time. He's hardly out of his teenage years. So I think it's more
