Quarters in Paris

11.11.2010 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger continued his quest for a fifth title this season by defeating Radek 6-4, 6-3 at the BNP Paribas Masters today.

Roger had to face rather tough resistance from Stepanek and was only able to score a break at the end of set number one. But he continued just the same, breaking early in the second set and bringing it home safely. Once again, Roger's serve was a great help, scoring a total of 11 aces - although he did face two break-points today.

Our champ will now meet Jürgen Melzer (ATP 12) in the quarter finals. He defeated the Austrian in straight set in Wimbledon and New York this year. Should Roger make it into the semis, it would be his best result so far at the tournament in Paris-Bercy.
