Round four at the French Open

27.05.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger booked his spot in the last 16 of the French Open with ease today, defeating Janko Tipsarevic 6-1, 6-4, 6-3 in precisely 90 minutes.

"I'm very happy, really," Roger said. "I thought that it would have been a lot more difficult. The first set was the key. That gave me confidence and it made him doubt his game plan. It's very nice playing tennis in such a situation because I feel I have less pressure than 10 years ago when everyone was comparing me to Pete Sampras and I had not won anything yet. So it's more relaxed now."

Roger raced through the first set, securing it after a mere 19 minutes thanks to two breaks. There was a fair deal of rallying in the second set and Roger hat to fight off a break-point with an ace, only to break through himself later to 3-2 and finally take the set. The last set and thus the match clearly went to Roger without much of a fight.  

Roger next faces either Stanislas Wawrinka or Jo-Wilfried Tsonga for a place in the quarter-finals.

Well done Roger. So far so good. Keep the hope of a 2nd RG crown alive, by focusing on one point at a time until victory is achieved in today's match against Stan. I wish you the best of luck. Stay healthy.

keep up this fantastic performance and wish you will be able to maintain the high percentage of the first serve which will make you very tuff to be beaten.
