Roger in quarters

17.03.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger won his match against America's Ryan Harrison 7-6(4), 6-3 to reach the quarters in Indian Wells.

 

"He was making it very hard for me," Roger said after the match. "It was a very tricky match. I think he's going to have a great future."


Against the expectations, Roger had to battle against the young American in the first set as Harrison showed a tough fight until the last moments of the tie-break. The second set saw much more focused serving from Roger who won 77% of his service points and reached a quota of 65% first serves. After 85 minutes, Roger used his fourth matchball to win.

In the quarters Roger will face his Swiss friend Stanislas Wawrinka.

DJOKOVIC just beat GASQUET. I can't imagine the sheer intensity of yet another potential encounter against DJOKOVIC tomorrow night in the semi-final.

No one has ROGER's talent. That is his weapon; and I hope he can fully use it in the remaining matches here at Indian Wells.

Isn't He playing doubles first??/!!!! if it is so, I dont think He'll overexert himself though. and yes i agree poor baby Roger playing 2 games the same day just before semi its just so unfair! on the other hand i'm pretty sure that his experience will carry him over the TOP!!!! so "Hop Schwyyz" Go Roger!!! Vamos Roger!!!!Forza roger!!! Allez Roger!!!!!! <3 <3 <3

You're absolutely right that we need to support Roger. I am visiting this site because of positive comments like your and others. I wrote a critique, unfortunately. No more. Roger is lucky to have such fans, who always supports whatever the result. Criticize brilliant man like Roger, who gave us so many beautiful moments is, I do not know, rude, ungrateful ......
So, Roger, good luck with this tight schedule.

Completely agree with you about both Bodo and a potential final between Roger and Del Potro. Wouldn't that be so "refreshing"? I'm tired of all the Nadal-Djoker talk.

Very interesting ! first a nab at Roger's fans , as usual !
Then a hymn to the elusive butterfly ...Bodo is a rabid, shameless fan of RN !
I HOPE THAT DELPO PUTS RAFA IN HIS PLACE AND SILENCE BODO !!!

A Federer/Del Potro final would be great !!!

This is where we need to talk about Roger, and I know that. But I thought this article about Nadal's draw was very interesting:

Go Roger!

Any other player has 2 matches in the same day, BACK TO BACK ???
What are the organizers thinking ??? so unfair !!!
And if he doesn't win, the comms and the journos will be all over Roger...

Don't let any of it faze you, Rogi !
Get as much rest as you can and keep the fire burning !!!
Double win !
We love you !!!

I did not repeat my post: I was trying to get to some other area! So sorry, despite that!

Dear Roger, yes Harrison fought and has talent. However, it remeains to be seen if his strategy will propel him or be somewhat of a handicap, because I saw those handicaps, and some are not just due to his lack of experience.
I loved the way you played against him: you assessed the situation and adjusted your game. No doubts, Roger. But nice words are good. Great good luck in the next match against Wawrinka. You know how to play him: Lundgren got him in better shape, too. Use your strengths.
