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 think Roger can come back!!It is not a wishful thinking

damn he lets him hit into the corners all the time. Well fans I am afraid this is not going to be Roger's day. If the first serve doesn't work then it is truly without hope here.

something wierd there - as it just said 1-0 and now it says 2-0 but triple break point with bloody Soderling again. They are skipping points on this Eurosport player. I can't believe Roger will lose his serve after that great start. What's happening???

wait are you ahead of us in Europe - I only see 1-0 on the scoreboard with Soderling having just served. What happened/ did Roger win his service game? Are they behind over here on Eurosport player?????
