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.

Yes, it´s true but it looks like as the sun and the win dry the clay, it somehow still helps Federer. One more game and the the second set is also for Fed.

Djokovic will watch this with great joy

Is this the Federer who can reach the semis and beat Djokovic ???

I think he tries - but too often he fails. Still - at least for me - it looks he is doing better and better as the match goes on. Even there were less unforced errors in the last few games.

Already 16 UES in this set far too much !!

Squezing Monfils ? Hop he will squeze his UES

He is squeezing Monfils... hopefully there will be another break here. That could mean the set for Federer.

At the beginning of the tournement Federer practised once with Monftils
hope he get profit from it.
