Roger makes 26th Grand Slam quarter-final in a row

07.09.2010 | Tennis

Today Roger powered his way into a 26th consecutive Grand Slam quarter-final in a row by defeating Austria's Jürgen Melzer (ATP 13) 6-3, 7-6 (4), 6-3 in a night match at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

 

Roger played with his accustomed style on the court, registering 41 winners to 23 for the Austrian as he continued his run at Flushing Meadows without the loss of a set.

 

Nevertheless, our champion had some luck in the second set tie-break with two net-cords and had to recover from a break down in the third set, but was always in control of the match. "Obviously, the tiebreakers are always crucial," Roger said. "It was a tough match today, breezy. He's a tough opponent and a close friend of mine so it was never going to be easy. I'm really relieved and happy to get through."

 

Roger's next match is scheduled for Wednesday against Robin Soderling.

Team _Roger***I fully agree with what you are saying. Patrick was just talking Roger down a bit and I resent that. I saw Roger get out of a car or cab on his way in to the stadium and he looked like he was limping a little. I hope I was just seeing things

Today, there's a tough stage on the way. Soderling makes to remember the clay of Paris. It
