Roger cruises on

31.08.2008 | Tennis

Roger won his 30th consecutive US Open match today, defeating Radek Stepanek 6-3, 6-3, 6-2 to reach the fourth round of the year's last Grand Slam event.

 

To win his first Grand Slam of the season, Roger is aiming for his fifth straight title at Flushing Meadows. He has not lost a set in three matches, and raised his right fist after zinging a final, winning forehand down the line. "I guess it's just nice to play well. Pretty simple," our champ said. "No complaints."

 

Roger encountered little resistance from his 28th seeded Czech opponent. He looked close to his best form while handing out a tennis lesson to the unfortunate Stepanek. "It was one of my goals coming into this season, next to trying to win Wimbledon. I missed that one. Oh, well," Roger said, drawing laughs from crowd.

 

He got broken for the only time in the first set, then broke back at love and held to win. In the third set, he double-faulted twice before winning his final 11 points on serve.

 

Roger will next face the winner of the match between Russia's Igor Andreev and Spanish 13th seed Fernando Verdasco.

I taped the ending of Roger's match. The sign that the blond lady held up read:
"No one is Betterer than Roger Federer." The words Betterer and Federer were in yellow, and there was a small Swiss flag in the upper corner.

***takeko*** Welcome back to Hurricane Alley!!! We have quite a few on the horizon queuing up for admission!!!

I think that was Jim Courier who made those observations; unless I'm mistaken, I recall PMac is one of the idiots writing off Roger since AO.

Roger,
Did you hear some fans stayed up until 3:00 a.m. their time to watch you? It seems that you have the obligation to win this tournament for them. You made them love you. Now, you have no choice but return your heart to them.

***Trinimum127, I can sympathize with your menagerie. Rudolph insisted on food before the match, so that was no problem, but we ended up not feeding ourselves because no way could we pull away from this match. I was starting to look at Rudolph funny (ju

Dearest Roger,

Thank you for taking us on a rollercoaster ride! You said it was fun - that's what's so special about you. You always find the positive. I could see the difference in your expression in the closing games, your were much calmer.

We, yo
