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.

i guess the master wanted some training. when he got bored he finished the crazy frenchman. i think, a hard match is better than a easy match. but what about all these ue's and missed volleys?? anyway sunday is the day. it's gonna be this year... good luc

I feel Roger was a bit off and it's better it happened today instead of the final. I did not see the last few games because we were cutoff from chanel surfing, but I like the fact that Roger under pressure still came to net a lot and won many poi

I meant, "big, tough" final-- God, my fingers are nervous even just thinking about Sunday.

I believe in you, Roger. You can do it. Please God, no wind on Sunday.

Go, Rogie!!!!!!!

3rd match point for Roger and he converts winning in 4th set. Congrats Roger, it took three hrs and 4 mins but he got the match. OMG. He was so feeling the pressure. I think Monfils is now a contender and he has a lot of confidence now. Roger just showed

Roger, the conquering hero!!! Tough weird match, but you came through in the end. So happy for you.

Fans, I think the wind played a big role today, since Roger hates wind. It takes away his precision, since he usually hits a lot of lines and servi

You need to lift your game, Roger. Plain and simple, you can't beat Rafa like this.
