Roger wins Swiss duel

30.05.2010 | Tennis

Roger cruised past fellow Swiss Stanislas Wawrinka 6-3, 7-6 (5), 6-2 today to book a spot in the quarter finals.

"I could have lost a set against Alejandro Falla in the second round and today against Stan and after this, you never know," said Roger. "So I am happy with what's happened. I'm playing well, serving well and moving well. I hope it continues like this."

In rather stormy conditions, Roger dominated the match from the start. His ground strokes were unerringly accurate and his serve metronomic. It seemed only complacency could stop our champ after the first set. But the second set proved to be a bit of a struggle as Roger dropped service in the first game. But he came right back and continued his superb tie-break record to end the set and move two sets up. Roger raced into an early lead in the third set and experienced no further problems at all from there.

Roger's win booked him a place in the last eight where a clash with Marin Cilic (ATP 12) or Robin Soderling (ATP 7) is up next on Tuesday.

Dearest Petike and Pippie(page 29)
Petike is great for staying so positive for roger! and Pippie is so great for being so humorous.

Yes Pippie, I'm the same - my behaviour is to jump up & down, slap the couch and talk to myself, analyse

IT IS NOT THE END OF THE WORLD THAT
FEDERER LOST, BUT HE BETTER STOPS
TELLING THE PRESS THAT HE IS ONLY
GOING FOR THE GRANDSLAMS LOOKS IT BIT
FOOLISH.

Roger!

Contract a real coach, not a friend!
And, loose 5 kg! Your not on good fit!
Traine your backhand in line! Why you do not not use it?
First service, always!
