Roger advances

28.03.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1


Roger has reached round four at the Miami Masters, battling down Juan Monaco 7-6(4), 6-4 today.

"I am happy with my game and things are going well," Roger commented. "I've played a lot more games than this time last year. I am confident going on court, preparing well and am happy with how things are going."

The Argentinian made Roger's life everything but easy. But our champ kept in the contest before making his move in the moments that counted.
The first set brought a break on either side, with Roger eventually showing the greater quality in the tiebreak to edge ahead. Both players continued fighting tough with Roger finally scoring the first break at 4-4 and finally pulling out a stunning drop shot to wrap up the match after a tough 104 minutes.

Roger will now play Olivier Rochus (ATP 89) whom he has beaten every time in seven matches so far.

Well done Roger! A tough and close match but I never felt you were in danger of losing, you seemed to be in control when you needed to be!
Good luck for the next match against Rochus.

Hello Roger,

Watching an inspired Almagro getting the re-break and successfully fighting off multiple breakpoints made watching you win the last point of the match extra special :-). The warm and very humid conditions obviously made it a physically tough match, so congratulations on a good win and getting to the 4th round. That beautiful backhand smash indeed reminded me of Pat Cash and Pat Rafter (which the commentators kindly reminded us of).

All the very best for your next match.
