Roger cruises into Final

16.05.2009 | Tennis

Roger cruised past Juan Martin Del Potro with a 6-3 6-4 victory today, playing his first final on clay this season tomorrow - against Rafael Nadal.


It was only after the first five games that Roger started making the key points and broke del Potro to love in the eighth game to take a 5-3 advantage. He served out the set comfortably and then dominated his opponent throughout the second set. He had no real trouble, continuing to play on a constant level and left a strong impression after finishing the match in 81 minutes.


So an exciting match between the world numbers one and two awaits us tomorrow. They will meet for the 20th time, Roger having lost the last five encounters and even laying back 1-9 in the statistics on clay. But Roger certainly proved that he is in excellent shape today and he will meet a rather tired Rafael Nadal in the final as the Spaniard's battle against Novak Djokovic today was all but a walk in the park.

It's all in Spanish but basically Roger and Safina got giant keys to brand-new Lexus cars. They thanked Nadal and everyone for their efforts.

Roger, like I said, is the best time to beat Nadal: on clay, in Madrid, right before Roland Garros.
You will have a great chance to win in Paris too.

Congratulation and I hope you will keep going and winning.

Nadal can't keep up with you when you play your game. Nobody can. Nobody in tennis history had the variety of skills you have. That's why you are simply THE BEST.
