Roger reaches 3rd round

23.06.2010 | Tennis

Roger advanced to the third round by beating qualifier Ilija Bozoljac 6-3, 6-7 (4), 6-4, 7-6 (5). The six-time champion had a slightly easier time than in his opening match, when he overcame a two-set deficit. But he had trouble putting Bozoljac away, converting only three of 13 break-point chances. Roger, playing on unfamiliar territory on Court One, managed to avoid being broken throughout the match and eventually prevailed in two hours and 46 minutes.

 

“I wish they were straight sets, obviously," Roger said. "But as long as you're moving on, especially at Wimbledon, I'm a happy man." "He was playing really well," the Swiss admitted. 

 

Roger now takes on either Frenchman Arnaud Clement or Australian Peter Luczak.

Best of luck with Clement today. Time to get out your attacking tennis, I think. We'll be at Centre Court, rooting for you as always.
