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.

Haven't seen Sheleo's banner, but if it reads what all of you seem to think it does, then hey, I demand 'partial' credit:-)! Clever spin on the song title, Sheleo! As they say, "les grands esprits se rencontrent toujours!"...

***whbarney*** Forgot to tell you that was a splendid idea. I truly believe prayer and every bit of positive energy helps.

If I remember your instructions, we should take the notes out of the "God Box" now that Roger's won?

Rogi,

What a match!!! Hard fought victory today which should get you more confident for what is coming. Just finding a way to win when your game is a little off and you’re not playing at your best is a positive thing, I think.

The end was just pri

***Willsson, I am so glad Sheleo had the crowd chanting but, alas, I didn't hear it. I did see the sign, but thought it probably was not Sheleo, since her term was "Bederer". Can't wait to hear what Sheleo has to say--it must have been cardiac sitting i
