Roger cruises through

11.05.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger defeated France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-4, 6-2 today to book a spot in the next round in Rome.

Roger secured an early break in the first set and had no trouble bringing it home 6-4 after 43 minutes, even though Tsonga had two chances to re-break. In the second set Roger saved seven of the seven break points he faced as he came up with great serves when necessary. After 83 minutes, Roger used his second match ball to win the match 6-4, 6-2.

Our champ will now play Richard Gasquet (ATP 16) on Thursday.  The two have met nine times before and Roger is leading the head-to-head 8-1.

Hello Roger
A clinical match where we were able to watch [and enjoy] some of RF's wonderful
tennis. Thank you & congratulations .
Your movement around the court is always a joy to see. Even though JW is very athletic you wore him down.
Roger you appear relaxed, hitting the ball cleanly, I am very happy and proud of the work both you and your team have done thus far this year.
Kuetschuek & Dutchlady,I share your optimsm.

Very best of luck for next round
Kindest regards
Margaret

Hi Roger,
I'm not sure if you are reading our notes. Whenever you won the game and sign your signature on the lens of the camera, you always wave at us. That means to say you aknowledged your fans with sincerity.
