Roger advances to quarters

12.08.2010 | Tennis

Roger defeated Michael Llodra 7-6 (2), 6-3 today to set up a quarter-final clash with his conqueror at Wimbledon six weeks ago, Tomas Berdych.

 

"It will bring back memories, some not so nice," Roger said of the rematch against Berdych. "Hopefully I can get him back."

 

Roger needed one hour and 19 minutes to complete victory today. He did not manage to find his rhythm right from the start, falling behind 0-3. But he managed to come back to 3-4 and then eventually secure the set with ease in the tie-break. The second set posed no threat to our champ, even though he dropped serve again at 5-1. The two players have both been active on the ATP-Tour for over ten years, but - astonishingly - had never met in a major tournament before.

Congrats on your win against Llodra but most of all congrats on your win against Berdych.

You played absolutely sublime in the first set and you looked in great touch. It was nice seeing you take the attack to Berdych, I think you play well like that.
