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.

Why you gave him the match? Why you LET him win?.

Just watched you lose to Gasquet... what a bl00dy AWFUL performance. You made an absolute mountain out of a mole-hill! You could have won that match 3 and 4... EASILY. Error, after error, after error, after error, after error!! Watching that final set tie-break... 3-3, a bog standard backhand and you dump it not even half-way up the net. Not good enough! In a way, it's good you lost. Had you played like that against Rafa, he would have eaten you alive! *cough* Miami *cough*

Wonderful match, Fed. Great baseline game and serve, though. Nice to see you on court playing that well. Go through and good luck against Gasquet. Hope it will be a nice game too.
All the best!
