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.

To fedfanny ,

If as you say the wind affected Roger , then explain to me how was Djokovic able to hold serve in the end and wind the match ?

I don't recall him wearing windshields

Yeah...
It happens. F*** it. About the racket, it's cool, you've just shown that you're human. I still respect and still believe you're the best.
Some changes, I guess, will have to be done.
Maybe the racket smash is crucial.
FEDEX the MASTER!

Roger was playing Djokovic and not Aggassi. I believe the heavy wind could really affectRoger to exercise the things he wanted to do against Djerko.
