Impressive performance

03.07.2006 | Tennis

Roger was in imperious form today as he booked his place in the Wimbledon quarter-finals with a victory over Tomas Berdych: 6-3 6-3 6-4.

 

Berdych is one of just a handful of players to have beaten Roger in the last two years, winning their second-round meeting at the Athens Olympics in 2004. But Roger has won all three matches since, including the final of the warm-up event in Halle recently, and ruthlessly disposed of Berdych on Centre Court today.

 

Berdych had saved two break points earlier in the first set when he let a backhand passing shot from Roger in the seventh game drop onto the baseline, clearly thinking it was going long. A forehand wide then gave Roger the break and the world number one broke his 20-year-old opponent again to close out the set in just 27 minutes.

 

Berdych, the world number 14 and 13th seed, admitted before the match it would take “something special” to beat the three-time Wimbledon champion on grass.

Roger will now meet either Novak Djokovic or Mario Ancic in the next round.

As Matt in Seattle says you should regard the game against Ancic as the final.He may think he has big serve and a experience beating you
in Wim.This thinking may increase his confidence.But never mind,we all your fans know you are the best.Nothing can c
