Roger reaches quarters

30.03.2011 | Starseite 1, Tennis

Roger easily defeated Olivier Rochus in straight sets 6-3, 6-1 to reach the quarter-finals of the Miami Masters.

An almost never-ending match between Maria Sharapowa and Alexandra Dulgheru pushed the start of Roger's match into early Wednesday morning. Our champ finally wrapped up his victory at 1:29 a.m. as it took him just 52 minutes to win this match thanks to scoring 88% of the points on his first serve. He already secured his first break after 11 minutes and bagged the first set after 26 minutes. In the end, he had 32 winners, losing only five points on his own serve.

Roger's opponent in Thursday's quarter-final will be France's Gilles Simon.

Hey Champ, your quick match against Olivier reminded me of the 2007 AO Semis against Andy. Simply no answers to your aggression. Just repeat the same tomorrow. Stay mentally fresh and focused. You rock forever!

Beloved Champion Roger:
I also stayed till the wee hours on a work night to watch you win. It was well worth it, you were on fire, full of energy and looking stunning. Did you have your Jura handy sipping coffee all night:) .. Best of Luck with Simon, hope you get him easy this time, and, Tks. to Nike for that beautiful shirt that boasts our Champion's beautiful neck, broad shoulders and those fabulous pectorals, not to mention the peach bandana.

Love & admiration from

I mean Simon, instead of simom.

You were perfect! Fresh, crisp and fast!
It was worth waiting for three hours in the humidity of Key Biscayne!

Good luck for QF against simom.

Love forever,
