Roger wins thriller

02.04.2009 | Tennis

Roger continued his domination of Andy Roddick, this time winning a tough match, topping the former world No. 1 American, 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 Wednesday to move into the semifinals at the Sony Ericsson Open.

 

13-time major titlist Roger was locked in a battle with Roddick for more than two hours, but despite 37 unforced errors, 20 more than his opponent, the Swiss pulled through. Roger had 42 winners, compared to 15 for Roddick.

 

"Here I had to adjust for a little bit to the night conditions, but I thought it was much easier than in Indian Wells where the ball is flying much more during the day, and during night it's way different."

 

Roger will next meet Serbian Novak Djokovic in the semifinals."I have a good record (7-2) against Novak, so I hope I can play well against him again," said our star.

THE GAME AND THE TOUR IS GETTING TOUGHER AND TOUGHER , AND AT THE SAME TIME ROGER IS ONLY GETTING MORE STUBBORN IN THAT HE DOESN'T NEED TO BUILD HIS GAME PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY AGAIN FROM SQUARE ONE.

Manu 08 p.36

Please, I didn't expect those words from you. You know, I understand your pain inside. I am angry myself, so much angry and empty that I didn't want to write anything today. I just wanted to calm down. Yes, maybe Roger needs a coach, or s

Hey Manu08

last year eeee was saying the same thins right after Wimbledon, and he/shee found some back up.

Son don`t worry, altough I don`t see the future, I`ve seen enough of the man to know he`ll do better.

And follow my advise, get some sleep.
