Roger goes through

11.05.2006 | Tennis

Roger booked his place in the last eight of the Masters Series tournament in Rome with a convincing third-round win over Radek Stepanek.

 

He was rarely troubled by the number 14 on his way to a 6-1, 6-4 result. Roger had 96% of first serves in to outplay the 27-year-old from Czech Republic. Stepanek made 28 unforced errors, while Roger standed at 7 during the course of the match, zipping through the first set in 22 minutes.

 

Stepanek steadied himself in the second but never looked likely to make it a contest after he dropped serve in the third game. In the last eight Roger will play the winner of the later match between sixth seed Nikolay Davydenko and Spanish qualifier Nicolas Almagro.
