Roger breezes into quarters

19.04.2007 | Tennis

Roger advanced into the quarterfinals of the Masters Series in Monte-Carlo after defeating Korean Hyung-taik Lee, 6-4, 6-3 in 65 minutes.

 

Roger stepped up a level today to cut a 6-4 first set win over his Korean foe who toppled Russian Mikhail Youzhny in the previous round. Both players held their respective serves in the first two games of the second set. Using his trademark shots, Roger seed went on to win the next three games to lead Lee at 4-1. The next two games saw both players held their respective serves at 5-2. Roger earned a match point but Lee fought back to stay in the game at 5-3, but our star finally sealed the match by converting his first of two match points.

 

Incidentally, today's victory was Roger's 499th career win. He will face Spain's David Ferrer (ATP 16) next.

Woops, have just looked at the draw and semi would hopefully be against Gasquet... Berdych is in Nadal's side!!! Would love Roger to play the Frenchman... we would see some real tennis at last, I'm sure....

Good luck Roger tomorrow in quarters... It will be a hard match, but am convinced you can make it 500 wins. You will have to step up a level though... Ferrer is no Lee or Seppi.
Good luck.. looking forward to semis against Berdych??!!

Dear Roger,

A solid win and into the quarters. The press coverage and TV coverage has been saying 'Roger is out of form'. Most of these people have never played tennis and do not appreciate the massive adjustment there is from hard-court to clay. For a

Congratz Rog.

At the beginning you didn't play very well and I was scared that you gonna lose the first set, but you showed some really good moves and hittings. In the second set you were sometimes phenomenal. But it isn't good enough for Nadal I guess
