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 am so happy that this happened today. You guys always expect for bad things happening to othe players. Nadal loosing a set, djokovic loosing a set, etc. Today you must have been so happy that Djoko was taken in to 5 sets. It almost came back with intere

Hey Guys,
***sheleo*** asked if anyone heard the chant:

"NO ONE DOES IT BEDERER THAN FEDERER!"
(I hope I got it right)
If you did please post. That was her and a bunch of other people who she got going with the slogan. I personally didn't hear it-
