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.

Hey, guys!

On the right site now. What a beautiful set Rogie played-- looks like his old self. Stan playing some great shots himself. Just heard the commentator say, "Roger Federer in ominous form at the moment"-- love the sound of that!
