Through to semis in four

04.06.2008 | Tennis

Roger rallied to defeat Fernando Gonzalez (CHI/ATP 25) 2-6, 6-2, 6-3, 6-4 and reach the semi final at his 16th consecutive Grand Slam event.

 

"There was a lot of pressure, he was hitting the corners and I didn't know exactly how I needed to play him," said Roger. "It's never easy against him, but I played a good match."

 

Roger had played a very shaky opening set, missing several easy shots while Gonzalez, using his powerful forehand but also making some surprising backhands down the line, took the lead. Our star, however, righted the ship in the second stanza and ultimately cruised to victory, with the help of 11 aces and five breaks.

 

Roger will play on Friday against the winner from Spanish fifth seed David Ferrer and flamboyant Gaël Monfils, final Frenchman in the home field.

Cesar, u must be out of ur mind to think that we Roger fans are hear to play politics. If you want to praise Rafa, why don't u go to his website. The match is very intense as it is right now and ur there playing politics. Pls keep your opinions to ur self

He is being pushed a lot. Pokah? You think he can take the 4 th and the match?

Federer still has trouble on his service games; he is falling behind and Monfils is not in the least dejected with 2 sets to one.

Roger is really making Monfils run alot!

He needs to come out firing in the 4th. If he is not careful he will be in the 5 th -- which would work in Feder's favor, but still he needs to finish off here in the fourth.

Federer finallly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!brekas to win the 3rd set, it ain't easy at all, Monfils has really stepped up his game and if Federer wants to beat him, he should do more than he is doing now.
