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.

If fed can get his mental strengh to where it used to be and keep doing what he is doing, players like djoko nadal murray will look like a joke.

If fed can win this, his fan will go crazy. I won't be able to stop myself from being one of them.

GREAT. YOU ARE IN YOUR Zone.
IS THAT I'M DREAMING?
"YOU WILL BE ABLE HOLD THE MOTIVATION THROUGHOUT THE TOURNAMENT?
I KNOW IF YOU ARE MOTIVATED IS VERY HARD TO EARN, RATHER, IS LITTLE TO LOSE A MATCH PROABLE.
PLEASE KEEP THE CONCENTRATION AND DESIRE TO WIN
