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.

Just glorious to watch. Poor old Tsonga, major sweating but over so soon. 'Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee' fits our Maestro to a 'T'. Love you, love to watch you...xxxxx

roger, i don't remember who said this but it is so true. they said "whoever invented tennis meant it to look like it does when roger federer plays". i totally agree. the game you play is so beautiful even your missed shots aren't unpleasant to look at. beautiful game you played against tsonga, very pleasing to the eyes. good luck against gasquet. i will be looking for more beauty and cheering you all the way. love and kisses from columbus, georgia in usa.

Great game Roger ! It was pleasing to see 87 minutes of swiss domination. You seem more mentally relaxed and that is what is necessary to beat top players like Rafa and Novak.
Best of luck for the next game,
Your biggest fan
