Roger Federer thirteenth straight win against Andy Roddick.
Posted by QB on September 6, 2007
Roger Federer defeated Andy Roddick in quarter finals and moved into Semi Finals where he will face Nicolay Davydenko. Roger Federer has 14-1 head to head record against Andy Roddick. Their first meeting was in Montreal in 2003 where Roger Federer lost to Andy Roddick and the same year Andy Roddick win his first US Open Grand Slam Title for the first time and become the number 1 rank player for couple of months. Andy Roddick was dethrone in January 2004 Austrian Open with Roger Federer taking over the number 1 stop and since than it is all history where he has break the all the records in men and women tennis sitting on top spot for consecutive weeks. Roger Federer is the best tennis player in tennis history.
The last night match was very tough for Roger Federer as Andy Roddick played very high class tennis. The first two sets were decided on tiebreaks Roger Federer winning both and it was really impossible for Andy Roddick to come back in the match. Andy Roddick played couple of loose points in the third set 8 game and Roger Federer was quick to cash on this opportunity to break his serve and win the match in third set. This was the match Andy Roddick did all he could have done but still lost the match and this is all any player can do against Roger Federer. I would have been very sad and disappointed if Andy Roddick defeated Roger Federer last night so it kind of relief that Roger Federer still have the chance to win US Open title for straight fourth time. This will be new record which will be very difficult to break in decades to come.
There is one very interesting women Semi Finals on Friday between Venus Wiliams and Justine Henin. Venus Williams has the edge of home crowd and hard court but Justine Henin has the game and mental toughness to beat her to reach to finals where she probably meet Svetlana Kuznetsova as she is facing another Russian Anna Chekvetadze who doesn’t have fire power, she play more like Martina Hingis type of tennis which is very interesting to watch but has the greater risk of loosing the match.
