Quarters in Shanghai

14.10.2010 | Tennis

Roger secured a 6-3, 6-4 win over Andreas Seppi at the Masters 1000 tournament in Shanghai today.

 

It was a tight match during the first set and half of the second. Roger served well but had to face several break points that Seppi fortunately could not make use of. The Italian did manage to do so in the second set, though, taking a 3-1 lead. But that was precisely the moment when Roger came back full blast, capturing the next five games in series and ending the match after 74 minutes.

 

Roger will now face Robin Söderling in the quarters on Friday in what could be a competitive match. Roger leads the head-to-head 13:1 but the Swede beat Roger in the quarterfinal of the French Open back in June.

 

Rafael Nadal was ousted by Germany's Jürgen Melzer today.

WOO-HOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! That must have been SOME match, Roger.

Phew... over in a flash of SHEER brilliance, no doubt! Pity all I had was live scores, and had to be careful at work. :(

Can't wait to see the replay tonight.

ALLEZ, ROGERRRR!!!!

BOTING,

I agree with you, Paul Annacone has a lot of merit in Roger's playing as of now, much more consistency, a clear game plan.....
