2007 AUSTRALIAN OPEN
ROGER FEDERER v ANDY RODDICK
6-4 6-0 6-2
Roger Federer produced a phenomenal performance to blow away Andy Roddick 6-4 6-0 6-2 and reach the final of the Australian Open in Melbourne.
Roddick came into the semi-final in confident mood, but after taking a 4-3 lead in the first set, the American was virtually a spectator.
World number one Federer reeled off 15 of the next 17 games, hitting 45 winners compared to just 12 errors.
Federer even impressed himself, saying:
"I had one of those days where everything worked and I was unbeatable.
"It's just unreal, I'm shocked myself. I've played good matches here, but never really almost destroyed somebody. That's a highlight of my career."
Roddick was left befuddled, discouraged, and dismayed because he thought his improved volleying and backhand might lead him to victory, but instead
the inspired Swiss number 1 demolished him with total authority.
