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.

eeee***You haven't a clue what NORMAL is.If you can't say something nice then don't say anything at all. Your words show you are not the brightest bulb on the tree. You could never measure up to Federer in anything whatsoever so keep it quiet on his site.

OMG, What was Roger trying to do to me? Give me heart-attack?!

As they say all's well that ends well.
Credit to Andreev who served like a maniac and whose forehands had to be respected. As I said in a previous post, once he winds up, look out!
