Masters Cup Final!

21.11.2004 | Tennis

Roger has done it - he has once again reached the Masters Cup final in Houston, defeating Marat Safin 6:3, 7:6 (20:18). It was a thrilling tie-breaker that matched the longest in singles history. Roger will now face Australia's Lleyton Hewitt, ranked number 3. Lleyton showed a very strong performance against Andy Roddick in the other semi-final. It was Roger’s 16th consecutive victory in a high-quality match full of tension, lasting 1 hour 47 minutes. Roger had to fight six (!) set-points for Safin in the tie-breaker. Roger and Lleyton have played each other quite a few times this year, Roger taking home all the victories: The Australian Open (round four), Wimbledon (quarter finals), the US Open (final), Hamburg (semi-final) and a prior match in Houston. Lleyton said: "Against the best players in the world, especially Roger, you have to be able to take him right at the moment. I haven't been able to do that all year.” You can do it, Roger!
