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."

Roger, I'm so proud to be a fan of yours! First of all, I was thrilled you pulled off the win against Kiefer--in hindsight, after all the nail-biting, I shouldn't have been that worried! But I wanted to compliment you on interrupting your post match int

Way to go Rogers , rest up good and ready for DN . DN is a big fellow so angle shots to make him run both sides .Serve/volley now and then to keep DN honest not letting him comfortable attacking your second serves like NK did to you in the second set .

Roger is "human" after all and even his "not so good day" is better than the rest.
Fed is the artist of the tennis court and as a human being he is a great asset to the game of tennis. He is not a "punk" and his class shines through with every intervie
