Through to quarters in four

23.01.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger has made it through the first week Down Under and will play the quarter finals next week thanks to a 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 6-2 victory over Tommy Robredo.

"It was a tough match and I'm really happy to be in the next round," Roger commented. "I'm sweating bullets out here so I'm really delighted to win this match."

Once again, Roger started perfectly, hitting ace after ace and not conceding a single point on his serve in the first set. But the second proved to be a rough ride as he struggled with his return and couldn't get the balls into play like he wanted to. But he went on to regain control in the third and fourth set, taking each one thanks to early breaks.

With the victory, Roger has reached the quarter-finals for 27 consecutive majors since his third-round exit at the 2004 French Open, equaling Connors Open era record! Of his 26 previous quarter-final appearances, he has converted 24 into semifinals, gone on to reach 20 finals and won 14 of them.

In the quarter-final, he will either meet Andy Roddick (ATP 8) or his Swiss Olympic teammate Stanislas Warwinka (ATP 19) on Tuesday.

the MAtch vs Stan is NOT going to be easy.
He will have a aproper strategy.. if i was tp guess i'd say it involves your backhand :)
Anyway.. playing the day match is your advantage. more spin 4 the win

Congratulations Roger on getting through to the last eight! The match with your friend Stan will be no easy one as he is an improved player. I am sure you can do it but the match will not be easy as he was inspired against Roddick and had a good strategy.

Good luck and I am sure you can win through.

best wishes

ANDY MURRAY PLAY SO WELL, NADAL MEET A BIG COMPETITOR AGAIN AND HE MUST SPEND ALOT ENERGY FOR THAT MATCH.

I don't know why you guys are all complaining about the day match ... that was what I was hoping for, because if he makes it to the semis he will have more time to rest than the other guy who had to play late, especially if the late match goes on over five sets. And Roger always said that he liked to play in the heat ... don't know what changed now. It will be just as hot for his opponent.

Dearest Roger,

I don't know why you are getting a day match three times in a row, but anyway best of luck against Stan and make semis.
I'll keep sending you the very best of positive vibes.
Go, Roger, let's go!

God bless you and your guardian angels protect you!
