The perfect Final: Roger vs. Nadal

15.05.2010 | Tennis

Roger defeated Spain's David Ferrer 7-5, 3-6, 6-3 today to set up the dream final against Rafael Nadal in Madrid, just like last year.

One of the keys to Roger's success today was certainly his serve - he dropped just two points on his own serve in the first set and a break in game 11 helped him secure the set in a little over 45 minutes. Ferrer broke Roger in set number two, taking the fourth game and continuing strong in order to force a decider. Roger then managed to raise the pressure in the third set and secured the vital break of serve in the eighth game. He showed a few more terrific points before closing out the match with an ace and with it a fourth Madrid final in five years.

Sunday's final will take place earliest at 6.30 p.m. (local time). Roger and Rafa had met each other in the final in Madrid last year, the outcome then was 6-4, 6-4 in Roger's favour. Our champ has the chance to improve his negative 7:13 head-to-head against the Spaniard and could win his 17th Masters-Series-title; Rafa on the other hand has the chance to make it his 18th.

My dear: you lost but you played very good. That is important. Nadal is a very good player on clay, we know that. It was a nice match.
Go for RG, I hope you win.
My heart is sad but I am thinking in RG now.

You played great today especially in the 2nd. So close...down to a couple of crucial points.

You'll do well in French open ... you proved today you are up to defending your title.

Good Luck xx

I'm sad Roger lost the final, but the most important thing is, that he is in a good shape for Roland Garros. He improved a lot compared to Rome and Estoril.
