Roger cruises on

17.03.2009 | Tennis

Roger felled big-serving Croat Ivo Karlovic 7-6 6-3 in just 70 minutes to reach the fourth round in Indian Wells.


“It’s always a bit of a success story to get his serve back,” Roger said. “It seems like he is serving from the service line. Ivo has really improved a lot over the past few years so it’s always nice to get through a tough match like this.”


Our champ was able to withstand 13 aces by the Croatian, breaking him in the seventh game of the second set to avoid another tiebreaker while never facing a break point himself. "That's always a good thing," he said of holding serve with ease. "That kind of keeps you a bit relaxed." Despite his dominant record over Karlovic, Roger  said he was always glad to come away with a win against him.


Roger next faces Chile's Fernando Gonzalez (head-to-head: 11:1), who dispatched American James Blake 7-5, 6-1.

I also have the same feeling that TFA is going to lose to Nalby today. He was not playing that well in the previous match vs. Tursunov. He had 20 something ues. for two sets. Roger only had 17 for the whole three sets. It's only Roger's back I

I believe from the little that Roger spoke of it that his back problem has not entirely left him and he mentioned he has to keep up his exercises. His playing today to win over Gonzalez was just beautiful. Roger knows what he is doing for sure and he was
