A convincing victory

01.07.2009 | Tennis

Roger did very well getting past Ivo Karlovic’s huge serves today to reach the Wimbledon semifinals with a 6-3, 7-5, 7-6 (3) victory. He is now only two more steps from a record 15th Grand Slam title!


"I love the record I have reaching so many semi-finals in grand slams in a row," said Roger. "Twenty-one, it shows how consistent I have been, how injury-free I have been to be able keep it up for such a long time … to play so well this week, I am really excited."


In a match featuring short points and few rallies, Roger conjured up a few great returns to break the 6-foot-10 Croatian twice. He will now face Tommy Haas in Friday’s semifinals. Haas reached his first Wimbledon semifinal by upsetting No. 4 Novak Djokovic 7-5, 7-6 (6), 4-6, 6-3 today.

Roddick held. Either a tiebreak or Andy Roddick breaks Andy Murray to win third set.

Go Roddick.

Rod's aces are not rolling in as they should. He leads 6-5 but I smell a tie break. He should have served this match out in his last serice game. Hope he can manage to break Murray. I can't stand Murray at all.

Murray serving below 50% first serves for the match, Roddick at 77%.

At least force a tiebreak Roddick.

5-5 in third, Roddick serving. Too much for Murray to break Roddick twice. This is probably going to a tiebreak (I don't think that Roddick can break serve twice in the same set). Not leaving until I see who wins the third set.

5-5 in the 3rd, Murray says comeon for evey shot making it meaningless. Rod just missed his chance there.

15-15 Murray serving down 4-5 in third set on serve, tied 1 set apiece.

***math4barack, yeah I am ahead a little bit, Rod just got broken serving for the set, he needs to break back to win the set but I doubt it,. I hate Murray's attitude, he's nuts.
