Roger in quarters in Wimbledon

28.06.2010 | Tennis

Roger has reached the quarterfinals in Wimbledon by easily defeating Jürgen Melzer (ATP 16) 6-3, 6-2, 6-3 in today's match on Centre Court. The one-sided victory in just one hour and 24 minutes secures Roger his 25th consecutive Grand Slam quarter-final appearance.

 

Roger, who had never faced Melzer at senior level before, produced his full array of wonderful touches and rock-solid serving on Centre Court in sharp contrast to his stuttering performances in the opening two rounds.

 

Roger dropped his opening service game but that was about the only slip-up from our champ from the rest of the match. Another break followed soon after as Roger took advantage of some hesitant play from the Austrian. He secured an early break of serve in the third and Melzer failed to fashion even a solitary chance of his own as the defending champion breezed into the quarter finals.

 

Roger: "It was always going to be a tough match against Jürgen. The start of the match was vital. I got the early break but he broke back but I was in my rhythm. It was great to have two days off but that doesn't make the difference if you are going to win the tournament."

 

Roger will either face Tomas Berdych (ATP 13), or Germany's unseeded Daniel Brands (ATP 98) in the last eight.

Dear Roger,
I don’t know how to start this post, I still can’t believe that the match is over, that there’s not a chance anymore for you to win. I just hoped until the last point that you’ll come back and you’ll save the second match point. I’m crying ri

Ay.... today is not great, but negative people saying RF is over needs to go away from this website. His true fans support him no matter what.

Luxlady, I agree with u. But I want to congratulate Berdych, he truly desreved to win. He did everything that he needed to do to win this match. I hope he takes out Djoko cos I can't stand him. Maybe Berdych or Tsonga I want either of them to win. This is
