Roger cruises into quarters

17.04.2014 | Starseite 1, Tennis

Roger cruised into the quarter-finals in Monte-Carlo with a superb 6-4, 6-1, victory over Lukas Rosol today.

"I think it was a bit rocky in the beginning.I was able to find my way into the match. After four games you usually kind of know what's going to work, what's not going to work. At the end I think I had good variation. I also came to the net some. I was effective on break points. My first serve started to work better. So I just think it was a more difficult start to the match."

Our champ fell behind early in the match, giving Rosol a 1-3 lead, but fought back to reach the quarters of the Monte-Carlo Masters in under an hour of play. He will now meet 12th-ranked Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on Friday.

He needs to execute more FH than BH & more direction changing shots & down the line instead of getting into long rallies against stronger opponents.
Somehow I'm getting a feeling he is playing well more than ever on clay.

I saw him depicting poem on dirt! Oh those scintillating shots , angles wow mesmerizing. Only thing he sometimes forgets what actually he is capable of. Good thing is he summed up things after few hiccups just what he was unable to produce in Miamai. He got back his mental serenity even though he was skeptical about his footing & bounce of the ball at few occasions. He is more than OK with his service.

My best wishes to you and Mirka on the impending new arrival of the little one! Hope all of your wishes come true! My best to the twin sisters and hope they don't get too jealous on the new arrival and accept their little sibling boy or girl!

Hope you don't have to miss any tournaments; but if you do it is understandable.
Here is a funny headline revealing the news:
