Roger cruises into quarters

14.04.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger defeated Marin Cilic 6-4, 6-3 in Monte Carlo today and has booked his spot in the quarter-finals.

Roger continued his swift trek and needed only 36 minutes to win the first set. He was in control of the match even though he did face his only break point of the day in the opening game of set two. Both players recorded 13 winners, while Roger made only 10 mistakes, compared to 27 errors by Cilic. Our champ wrapped up the match after 70 minutes when Cilic's forehand sailed long.

"I thought Marin did well, actually," Roger commented after the match. "I thought he had a good mix going and I thought we were both serving well. I was really happy with the performance at the end."

On Friday, Roger will either face Jürgen Melzer (ATP 9) or Nicolas Almagro (ATP 12).

Great going Champ! Keep up the good serve. Just add little pace on the cross court shots on both wings (especially BH) and keep'em deep. Towards the end of 2nd set, there are some errors. I know you experimented little bit once you got the lead. But be careful from now on, since you're gonna play the best grinding players in the SF and F.
