ROGER FEDERER v ANDRE AGASSI      

 6-3, 2-6, 7-5, 3-6, 6-3

 

 

World number one Roger Federer battled past Andre Agassi in five sets to set up a US Open semi against Tim Henman.
The Swiss resumed leading by two sets to one after rain stopped play on Wednesday, but Agassi levelled with the only break in a tight fourth set.
The top seed missed two chances to take control of the match as he let break points slip by in the fourth set and Agassi eventually made him pay as he levelled the match.
But it was the Australian Open and Wimbledon champion who looked the more composed in the final set as the wind became increasingly difficult.
"I was a little worried," Federer admitted afterwards.
"I missed chances in the fourth when I had a couple of break points and from then on it was 50-50, who's going to make the mistakes, and he did at the right time for me."
Federer responded about the conditions, "That's what you have to do at the Open, you have to handle the planes, the night matches, the rain, the humidity, the opponents. But to beat Andre on Centre Court is a nice feeling."
Agassi admitted he had struggled more than his opponent with the blustery wind.
"Hitting the ball in the centre of the court was a great shot today," said Agassi.
"I just didn't come up with it when I needed it. It was as extreme as it gets. If chairs are blowing over that is a problem."
