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.

lux-lady. I have seen and heard Roger talking to Robin and they are friends. Robin simply wants to win and we can't fault him for that. Sometimes it is hard to play the people you really like but Roger seems to do it nicely. Whatever happens to Roger toda

Let's not all cry too much if he loses, or give him a lot of grief. Yes it had to happen some day. Roger has been number one forever. His records are amazing. Just give him credit.

but milesa, Soderling has more errors overall than Roger. Roger just isn't having his usual day today. The rain or a bad night - who knows?
