Ready for the quarter-finals

07.09.2005 | Tennis

Roger dropped his first set in the US Open before defeating Nicolas Kiefer of Germany 6-4, 6-7 (3), 6-3, 6-4 to earn a spot in the quarterfinals.

 

"So far in this tournament, I haven't lost a set before", Roger said after the match. "When it happens, you're not ready for it,'' he added. Roger is now 68-3 and unbeaten since the semi-finals at the French Open, having won 32 straight matches on hard courts - moving him ahead of Ivan Lendl and behind only Pete Sampras in the Open era. Roger can break Sampras' record by winning the US Open.

 

Roger did look vulnerable early against Kiefer whom he'd already beaten three times this year, even tossing his racket once. He next plays 11th-seeded David Nalbandian of Argentina, a 4-6, 7-6 (4), 6-4, 6-2 victor over Italian Davide Sanguinetti. Roger said before that match he would prefer Nalbandian, "because I have a bad record against him."

Yes eleven is right, you do shine like a star with the yellow bandana, but I think you should wear red when you reach the final.
You played an excellent match yesterday, you will be the champion on Sunday.
Best wishes, Pat, UK.

Dear Roger,

Congratulation on your convincing win with Nalbandian tonight!!! You showed him how the tennis master should be. We are so proud of you.

Five down, two to go. Next is Hewitt, and you know you can do it. Please keep winning.

Go,
