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.

The gods are smiling down on our Roger right about now...

The odds of 2 seeded players in Roger's way has dwindled down to just 1!!!!

Roger got the tougher draws of facing Soderling-n-DJOKESTER, back-to-back!!!

Why????

What masterful work tonight, Champ Roger!

The way you tore Robin Soderling apart was simply marvelous.

Your BreakPoint conversion (5 for 6) was simply exceptional and sweetly so! As was your Return of Serve (ROS).

Please keep your mental focus t
