Semis against Murray

20.03.2009 | Tennis

Roger held off a late rally from Fernando Verdasco to score a 6-3, 7-6 (5) victory Thursday night in Indian Wells, advancing to the semi finals.

 

Roger had a great start and continued well into the second set, taking a 4-1 lead. However, Verdasco got on a run and broke Roger twice, including the 11th game to take a 6-5 lead to serve for the set. “I don't think I served great in those games, and I think he got some good hits in,” Roger said. “Because he's got such big shots, especially his forehand, he can put you under pressure quickly.

 

Roger fought off set points, taking the second set into the tie-break where he raced out to a 5-1 lead and later finished with a service winner.

 

Roger will play Andy Murray in the semis, which will be a rematch of the U.S. Open final, which Roger won in the fall. "He's a great player and great players are tough to play against," said Roger. "He's young, so you still have to figure him out a little bit. He's changing his game as time goes by. Every time you play him, he plays a bit different. I'm aware he has beaten me more than I've beaten him but, on big occasions, I think I came through."

Nadal won against Roddick - which was expected but its good to c Roddick's improvement - he knows his limitations and is trying his best from that perpspective. Fed - forget Nadal, forget Murray they r far superior now, are u watching Roddick , last few m

There's nothing much I can say.
It was a terrible match, you had many unforced errors. The most shocking thing is that you had 11 break points and you only used 1!!! What the hell?! I also noticed that you weren't trying at all, your footwork was awful,

You are much better player and the match (after second set) was yours !!!!

All the best in Miami now .....

I will always support you - win or lose.

How sad I am for you that Murray has triumphed again. I think he is some jinx like Nadal and you have to find a way to overcome them. Your tennis is supreme but your mindset constantly lets you down.

All your fans love you so we will keep the flags

It's official :

Federer "currently" has NO answers to Murray.

I'm saying "currently" because he will only find answers if :

1- He admits he has weaknesses and flaws in his game ( the f***ed up backhand for example ) and that he needs help , and f
