Roger soars into semis

06.11.2009 | Tennis

Roger played a terrific match today to defeat Evgeny Korolev 6-3, 6-2 in just 55 minutes.


The Russian qualifier demonstrated why he made it through to the quarter finals in Basel and also had several break-balls, but Roger simply played too well. Our champ broke his opponent to 4-2 in the first and 3-2 as well as 5-2 in the second set.


The crowd in Basel is in for a special showdown on Saturday: Roger will play against another player from Basel, his long-time friend and junior training colleague Marco Chiudinelli. Chiudinelli clearly beat France's Richard Gasquet 6-1, 6-3 and will be playing the first semi-final at an ATP tournament of his career.

Dear Roger
Congratulations! I hadn't time to write after the match, but I am really happy. You played well, but your opponent was, as I predicted, by no means an easy one! He surprised me!!! But everything is well what ends well! Now, you have to play yo

Dear Roger,

Congratulations on a great win against Korolev in just 55 minutes. Good luck in the semis against your friend, Marco. It is so frustrating that there is no coverage of your Basel tournament here on British TV. I love your new outfit - it
