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.

I just feel that Roger needs to quit, leave while he is still at the top. This happened in france you lost to a big hitter, you dont take your lead you give it up. Family is more important please just leave the game. I will no longer watch you after wimbl

Orr you can go and get broken?? You are a terrible match player not using your momentum to take the match!

Need to make more of an impression in his service games and make yours shorter

Roger missed his break chances here but will serve for the 2nd set. Go Roger!

So Roger, one game away from winning the second set. Maybe losing the 1st set is a wake up call for him. He needs to take his break chances as they come and keep holding serves. That's all there is to it really.
