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.

DO NOT scare me like that!!!!!

My boyfriend and I watched the match last night and, I think he may have little bruises on his arm from me spazzing out! I couldn't believe you lost that second set!

But, of course, my nerves were calmed when you finis

Dear Roger,
Great win! You really frightened us with your fall! It surely affected your game for the rest of the set but no sign of it for the 3rd. Tursunov is a tough player, no surprises there. Fans (and the media) tend to forget that on the other side
