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.

I would not say he is making too many UEs "as usual" because otherwise he would not be number one in the world! We just expect so much of him. Maybe he doesn't feel well today. There is a virus going around my town that makes you feel horrible for 10 d

Rain delay again!!! This is Roger's last chance to regroup!!!! Personally I pray for continual rain tonight, and that he starts again tomorrow fresh and possibly with a better sleep and attitude. Because if he continues today, I feel he will lose.

Yes, Soderling plays wonderful game, but Roger is not out, not yet. He must be focused

Dont understand why Federer does not
attack more

Roger looking defeated already. This is sad. He will lose his number one if Rafa wins RG right? Or even if Rafa gets into the semis and he doesn't???

I think Roger must have had a bad night with the twins - his timing is all off and he is hitting things out and wide all over the place. He isn't sharp like with Wawrinka. Or is it just that Soderling is so on fire todaY????
