Roger fights his way into semis!

27.01.2010 | Tennis

Roger defeated Russia's Nikolay Davydenko 2-6, 6-3, 6-0, 7-5 at the Australian Open today to reach the semifinals. It is the the 23rd time in series that he has reached the semis at a Grand Slam tournament!

 

After the match, Roger said: "I was luckier today, definitely, but I played well and I am really happy now." But they both left all spectators lucky enough to be there with a match to remember. It might even have been the match of the tournament.

 

After one hour, at 2-6, 1-3 with Roger's chances not looking a bit dim, he turned the match within just of a few minutes - winning a breathtaking 13 games in a row. He found his serve again in the same moment as Davydenko's tennis fell to pieces. But, just as bizarrely as he imploded, Davydenko gave the match another twist as he fought his way back in the fourth set. However, the Russian's return to form came too late as Roger closed the set 7-5.

 

He will now either play Serbia's third seed Novak Djokovic or France's 10th seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in Friday's semi-final.

My Dear Roger,

Congratulations on a brilliant performance once again!!! Well done. You just know how to make players play badly. Tsonga was not allowed to play; you sorted that out from point one.

I am confident that you can do the same with Andy.
