Next up: Andy Murray

08.01.2009 | Tennis

Roger has reached the semifinals in Doha after defeating eighth-seeded German Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-2, 7-6 (6). The world's number one, Rafael Nadal, has dropped out of the tournament.


Roger even had a 4-1 lead in the second set when his opponent raised his level remarkably, taking the set to a tie-break. It was the first time in their third encounter that Kohlschreiber was able to do so. But Roger faced the three set-points successfully and managed to take home the set and match after a fantastic forehand winner. It was his 15th victory in his 16th match in Qatar.


Roger's semifinal opponent on Friday will be the surging Murray, who handled Ukrainian Sergiy Stakhovsky 6-4, 6-2 in today's nightcap. The third-seeded Murray is the reigning Doha champ, having beaten Swiss Stanislas Wawrinka in last year's finale . Roger captured the Doha event back-to-back in 2005 and 2006.

We all know Roger is great player, he gets this respect from players and fans because we all know how much it takes for player to be consistent and achieve what he achieved so far. We also know from Roger himself, that he will step on court to WIN.

Roger lost his temper when he had three break point chances and failed to revert any to win the game.

Good luck in the other tournemnts.

Wish I could have monitored the match today. It sounds like it was a good one, as I knew it would be. Andy Murray is a tactician and tough opponent. I think he's going to give Roger a tough time every time. It's that way with some players, just like o

I hate seeing you lose a match especially to that jerk Murray, but you have to admit he is playing as well as we have seen him. He is however just another Nadal and Djoker calling for the trainer, it's just gamesmanship, it should be stopped,
