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.

Good job, Rogi! Congratulations!!!
I'm glad to hear that your ankle is OK.
The match was so tense that I didn't dare to watch the last ball of the 2nd set and also the 3rd set. It's incredible that you played 6-0 in the third set. You adjusted yourself
