Quarter finals in Monte Carlo

20.04.2006 | Tennis

Roger secured his place in the Monte Carlo Open quarterfinals, ending the adventure of hometown qualifier Benjamin Balleret 6-3 6-2.


"It was a fabulous experience," 23-year-old Balleret. "It's even better because I have the feeling that Roger didn't take me lightly and played his real game. "I did what I could and never felt ridiculous but it was a bit difficult at the end." Ranked 351 in the world, Balleret was playing in his first ATP tournament after coming straight from the Futures circuit, two levels below.


Roger's next opponent will be eighth seed David Ferrer who battled past 11th seed Juan Carlos Ferrero 6-1 6-7 6-3 in an all-Spanish baseline duel. Ferrer and Roger met in the semifinals of the Nasdaq-100 Open in Miami three weeks ago when the latter triumphed 6-1 6-4.


In the surprise result of the day, 15th seed Tony Robredo, also Spain, beat Argentine third seed David Nalbandian 5-7 6-1 7-5 after more than three hours on the clay court.

Another great result, Roger m'boy.
Best of luck with Ferrer, and for the rest of the tournament - I may not get back to my computer until it's all over as I'm going away for the weekend. But you will never be far from my thoughts...
Love forever,
