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.

A lot of wonderful games, a lot of records and you're a really great player.
You maintain more physical strength and mental strength intensely and coolly, and please play in a quarterfinal.
I expect that your amazing play explodes.
Good luck!
Go to win!

Consistency from beginning to end...to be in rhythm with one's indestructible, unyielding life force that inevitably changes the one's surroundings.

Brilliant tennis, Rodger. Stay hungry.

Good luck in you match with Monfils.

Changing the subject, women's tennis - I find Francesca Schiavone a breath of fresh air. She is so passionate about her tennis. I find her inspirational.

Always with you.

It seems to me that the winner will be Roger or Novak, because they are convincing.
In an interview with Wilander Roger said he had sore muscles in Madrid. Perhaps this is why he lost the match against Nadal.
The fact is that Nadal is shaken and that this is a great opportunity for Roger to win the final, if both get there.
Everything is in Roger head and belief in himself.
But first Gael.

WOW!! You were simply superb against Stan, Roger. Monfils is a bit dangerous but you'll surely be able to win against him as well as against Novak.. Hope to see you lift your second FO trophy after beating Rafa(guess he's only gonna come to the finals) at RG.
Good Luck against Gael....
