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 saw the blonde lady holding the sign as well and it was not "sheleo's" sign. There was no "bederer" in it. The sign on TV had yellow lettering and I believe sheleo's has red lettering.

I could be wrong. I really should have recorded t

***willsson - I guess I was being nice because my dogs are pissed at me; the cats deigned to partake of their dinners after my tardy offerings; and, I told my son to shut up during the match (how dare he talk about crap when I was concentrating all my ene

Well, well, well, looks as though ***LIADS***emerged from his vampiric slumber. What woke you? The smell of Roger's blood on Arthur Ashe? Are you a Federer fan, or some fantasmal figure who looms to spread gloom? Why don't you find some other website

OK, surely the sweetest victory so far. He will relive the 5th set in his dreams tonight and still feel shivers down his spine tomorrow morning over coffee. But guess what: he's still there!!! Muller, Djokovic, Roddick or Nadal - they will be dealt with i
