Roger cruises through

25.06.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger won his match against David Nalbandian 6-4, 6-2, 6-4 today to make his way into week two in Wimbledon. 

 

"The guy has beaten me eight times so he knows how to beat me a ninth time. But I had a good level today and I served extremely well and I am very pleased. I'm playing better than last year and I'm more confident on my serve and comfortable on the baseline," said Roger after the match.

 

Our six-time Wimbledon champion started the match excellently, making use of his second break point to take a lead in game number three. But Nalbandian, too, seized his chances in the opening set, breaking Roger in the sixth game - Roger's first break in Wimbledon this year. Nalbandian fought hard but Roger always just had that necessary edge to finally take home the match after 106 minutes.

 

Roger will meet either Nicolas Almagro (ATP 15) or Michail Juschni (ATP 17) in the fourth round.

Very enjoyable match, Roger! Thank you for the treat!
You served very well and had full of confidence. As the tournament goes deeper, it will be tougher. I think you need to calm down when you are broken or behind. Take your time between the serves to regroup yourself and break your opponents' momentum.
Youzny is next. Good luck!

FEDERER IS A HUMAN BEING NOT A GOD.

ADRIANAR25 ,

I THINK IT'S TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE AND DOWNRIGHT FORBIDDEN TO CALL FEDERER A GOD.
