A nice heavyweight matchup for an autumn weekend! Federer vs. Roddick in the semis of the Davidoff Swiss Indoor in Basel. Someday fairly soon, this match-up will seem. . .retro. Enjoy it while you can, folks, 12:00pm, live on Tennis Channel.
Andy Roddick beat David Nalbandian (another imminent relic) in the quarters. Rog took out Radek “already a throwback” Stepanek 6-3, 6-2 without facing a break point.
Roddick on Roger:
“I always look forward to playing (Roger),” said Roddick, via the AP. “You want to play the best if you are an athlete and a competitor. You want to get out there and give it a go.”
Novak Djokovic will take on countryman Viktor Troicki in the other match. Troicki took Nole to five sets at the US Open. That’s at 9:30am, Eastern, on Tennis Channel.
