Roger yet to drop a set

29.05.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger booked his spot in the quarter finals of the French Open today after defeating fellow Swiss Stanislas Wawrinka 6-3, 6-2, 7-5.

"I am super-happy because I knew after he (Wawrinka) beat (Jo-Wilfried) Tsonga, when he really dominated in the last two sets, what the danger was," Roger said.

Roger easily took the first two sets against his Olympic gold doubles-partner of Beijing. Wawrinka opened the third set well as Roger suddenly found himself trailing 0-3. But our champ came back right away and finally wrapped up the match with an ace on his second match-ball. He produced 32 winners while Wawrinka had 19. It is Roger's ninth defeat of Wawrinka in ten meetings and another milestone - he broke the record for most consecutive Grand Slam quarterfinals he had previously held with Jimmy Connors (now 28).

Roger will now either face Spain's David Ferrer (ATP 7) or France's Gaël Monfils (ATP 9) for a place in the semi-finals.

The righteous man walks in his integrity.
People of integrity are committed to a life of excellence-seeking to be or do better,or to go beyond what is normally expected of them. Having integrity means doing the right thing even when nobody is looking and keeping your word even if it costs you something.
( Proverbs )

No harmful shaft can reach the righteous man,
Standing tall amid the storms of hate,
Defying hurt and injury and ban,
Surrounded by the trembling slaves of Fate

Majestic in the strength of silent power,
Serene he stands, nor changes not nor turns;
Patient and firm in suffering’s darkest hour,
Time bends to him, and death and doom he spurns.

Wrath’s lurid lightnings round about him play,
And hell’s deep thunders roll about his head;
Yet heeds he not, for him they cannot slay
Who stands whence earth and time and space are fled.

Sheltered by deathless love, what fear hath he?
Armored in changeless Truth, what can he know
Of loss and gain? Knowing eternity,
He moves not whilst the shadows come and go

Call him immortal, call him Truth and Light
And splendor of prophetic majesty
Who bideth thus amid the powers of Night,
Clothed with the glory of divinity.

( James Allen Library )

Keep walking,Roger.
Whatever Future brings,stay "super-happy".:D
