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.

well fans, he tried and it just wasn't his day. There is just nothing that can be done about it. We can only hope for Wimbledon now. But it could be the end of Roger's number one run. Very possible. But he can also come back. No matter what I love R

First of all Soderling was the better player. Roger went to sleep, as usual, in the 2nd set and is paying for it. End of his Grand Slam streak, end to him being #1. Roger needs to wake up and work harder. he has lost his edge and has become very beatab

Feel sorry that my predictions of last month
have become real

any why did the tournament organizers put Soderling in Roger's half again anyway?? After they were in the final last year together?
