Roger flies into final

15.01.2009 | Tennis

Roger got in a good workout as he won the semifinal of the AAMI Classic today, holding off Spain's Fernando Verdasco 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (5) at the Australian Open tune-up event.

 

"I'll play enough tennis this week, it's better to be on the match court," said our champ. "The second set wasn't the best of levels, he was struggling with the sun and I couldn't capitalise." After advancing on opening day in 57 minutes against Carlos Moya, Roger said that going three sets was fine.

 

He will await the winner of Friday's Promotion round match at the eight-man Australian Open tune-up, which will see his Davis Cup teammate Stan Wawrinka face Chile's Fernando Gonzalez.

Hi All,

Well, I just got back in time to see the trophy presentations to Roger and Stan. Sounds like our Champ had a great match and, thanks to ***Trinimum127, I don't have to worry that winning Kooyong will jinx Rog for AO. She reported earlier toda

It was a real treat to see Yvonne Goolagong-Cawley, whose game and personality I greatly admired.

BRAVO, ROGIE!! Brilliant tennis. "Ominous form" said one commentator.

You were very relaxed and, to be fair, Stan had to be a little tired after yesterday's match.

You tried every shot in the book - great to see.

Now on to your next GS title - n
