Roger seeks third Cinci title

22.08.2009 | Tennis

Roger defeated defending champion Andy Murray 6-2, 7-6 (8) today, stopping a four-match losing streak to the 22-year-old Scot.

 

"I know my game's on, and when my game's on, I know I can beat any player in the world," Roger commented. Our champ was in control during the first set, breaking Murray’s serve twice and nearly breaking it a third time when the Scot saved three break points to win his second game. Roger closed the first set with a successful challenge along the right sideline.

Murray never led in either set, but kept the second set within a game at all times and was able to force the tiebreaker.

 

Roger will play the winner of Saturday night’s second semifinal between world No. 3 Rafael Nadal and No. 4 Novak Djokovic in the final Sunday afternoon. Roger will be seeking his third win here after titles in 2005 and 2007.

for the people that thought that Novak had chance…you haven’t been paying attention to Roger lately. This is how the match went: Roger let Novak win one game in first set not to embarrass him to much and then in the second set Roger spotted Novak a 3 game
