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.

God, I thought Roddick gonna take the second set! Guess I was wrong... not yet

This is surely boost for Andy..

Does someone need to call a doctor to perform the heimlech maneuver ? Is Andy Roddick choking ? Let us hope not !

Down 0-40 when serving for the third set ?

Roddick has at least shot Murray and the fans up, he should hold now serving for a 2 sets lead.

I love Rod's resolve and his play. He is very calm and focused and I know he can do this
07/03/2009 | 06:25 PM
good night ruri !

Roger will beat either of them !

this is actually seeming kind of promising. wow, who knew ? Roddick has something of a chance here. Hold serve one more time Andy Roddick and you win this third set. It's a big honor for you to play Roger Federer in the Finals at Wimbledon.
