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.

Sad for the result, but positive for Wimbledon. To all Roger fans: please be kind! This man has given us all so much joy in the past, and it's

I cannot believe some people here. Is it not enough that Roger has given us so much to be proud of already? That he has accomplished so much and given us so many reasons to celebrate in the past? Should we accept only wins from him, and not losses? I THIN

God, I'm turning into an alcoholic watching Roger. I have to drink Vodka to get through his matches. So sorry, Roger. Soderling was always going to be tough, and he found his game. DAMN. I need to go lay down. I'm so sad for you Roger. I know you'r
