Roger relentless at US Open

04.09.2006 | Tennis

Roger reached the last 16 of the US Open on Sunday with a comprehensive 6-3, 6-3, 6-0 win over Vince Spadea of the United States.

 

Roger hammered 40 winners in his 88 minutes on court and has yet to drop a set at this year's tournament.

 

"I'm very happy. Not losing a set the first three rounds, that's always awesome," Roger said. "From now on, you try to keep it up. Of course the rounds are getting tougher. "

 

Next up for Roger will be Marc Gicquel who continued his surprise run with a thrilling five-set win over 21st seed Gaston Gaudio. The little-known Frenchman won 6-0 4-6 4-6 6-1 7-6 (7/3).

Hi Golflover,

Roger plays in the afternoon after Mauresmo and Safina, who are supposed to play after 12 noon. Also the weather according to weather report is supposed to be o.k. So hopefully he will have another three setter and be rested for the next

Hi Golflover,

I agree with you completely. Even the commentators were making remarks about how the first group is going to have a hard time with no breaks in between. You are right about how Roger is ignored even though he is the defending champion. Th

I was there too at the Louis Armstrong when you played against Spadea. You are but a dream, can't believe I saw you in person playing flawlessly, fluid and so smooth. I was stubborn and did not want to leave. I thought you'd be playing at the Ashe Stad
