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.

Solid performance against Robin, but now its time to test your current levels against the number one player on clay. Stay calm and focused Roger, and enjoy the challenge. Wishing you the best of luck and hope to see you more determined than Miami.

Congratulation Roger.
You had played the match so good, your back hand has improved clearly. but your moving is still slow, the tactics of Paul Annacone are good, try your best the match today against Nadal.
(Thank you Robin Solderling and good luck him too)

Rog, It's time, my good man, to kick some espanish ass. Do it with a vengence in your own inimitable way. Your buddy in the States, Rex O'Day
