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.

Hey, I am not talking of the the home match with buddy Stan, I am talking about the quarter final with the home favourite at Paris and that is history. The Django 'joker has to contend with the new boy on the block with nimble feet, killer serves and impossible unforced errors and incredible illegal shots of tennis-Rogerer Federer, the greatest of our times.

that's what i'm talking about. This run has been sweet and i'm loving every bit of it. I believe the cup is yours for the taking when Djokovic tastes his first defeat of the year. I know you can do it men...counting on you.

Cheers
