Roger cruises into quarters

05.05.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger defeated Xavier Malisse today 6-4, 6-3 and has booked his spot in the quarter-finals.

Roger played much more flexible today - just a few hours after his victory over Spain's Feliciano Lopez. He was in control of the match. He struggled only once when Malisse fought his way back into the first set but Roger eventually took it 6-4. After 70 minutes, Roger won the match with his first match ball.

"I was really happy with my performance," said Roger after the match. "I'm looking forward to the next round. Xavier is a great player, who is capable of great shots so it is very nice to get through."

In the quarter-finals, Roger will face the winner of the match between Robin Söderling and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Roger leads the head-to-head 15-1 against Söderling, and 3-1 against Tsonga.

Hello Roger,
The webteam forgot to mention that you will be playing the SF this afternoon, but we definitely have noticed that you beat Söderling for the 16th time in your career :-)! It won't be easy to beat Nadal on clay and so far the last ones to do so are you and Robin Söderling. Since you beat Robin yesterday all our hopes are set on you (as usual I might say). If only I could watch you in the final tomorrow at home.
I wish you all the very best and every luck possible against Raf

You played very polite tennis in a quarterfinal, and it was wonderful.
Please also show great play sufficiently in a semifinal.
