Federer Reached Qatar Open Final
Doha (1/8) - Roger Federer sets up a final clash with defending champion Nikolay Davydenko after beating Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-3, 7-6.
Federer ended the match against Tsonga a smash and will be favorite to win the title for a third time when he faces Davydenko Saturday.
"It was a good match," said the sixteen-times grand slam winner, who now has a good chance to win back the title he won in 2005 and 2006.
"I played well. It became a high quality match in the second set and it was right that it went to a tiebreak because Tsonga played well too."
Federer has a 14-2 career record against Davydenko, although he did lose to him in last year's semi-final.
Davydenko repeated his last-year success as he stunned sick top seed Rafael Nadal in the semi-final 6-3, 6-2. The Russian beat Nadal in the same tournament final last year.
