Roger in third in Toronto

11.08.2006 | Tennis

Roger advanced to the third round in Toronto with a 6-3, 5-7, 6-0 win over Dmitry Tursunov of Russia. He will now face Xavier Malisse of Belgium, who defeated Thomas Johansson of Sweden 7-6 (7), 6-3.


Roger rolled his right ankle in a hard fall against Tursunov but said he was uninjured. "It was definitely a tough match against a guy who has become confident," Roger said. "I was happy the way I closed out the third set because it was really getting tough in the second."


Roger has not met Xavier Malisse for four years. Before that period they played each other a total of seven times, Roger winning six of the matches. Malisse has reached two tournament finals this year (Adelaide and Delray Beach) and qualified for the semi-finals in Indianapolis.

Roger es increible lo que demostras partido a partido, lo grande que seras que hasta jugando mal podes alzar los brazos, sin discutir, ni protestar, ni frustrarte, aceptando la realidad y enfrentandola, esa es la diferencia entre un campeon y otro jugador

Dear Roger

Watched your match last night on tv, but will be there today at courtside to see you play Gonzales. Please focus on him because he plays wild. I know you will.

Congrats last night. Well done.

See you later,

Good to see you get through the match with Malisse. I have felt that you haven't looked in full health during this tournament. I hope that's not the case.
Good luck in the semis.
