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.

You know what...I am seeing RF extremely better than last year and of course very solid since RG....despite of his defeat to Nadal....Fed regained something he had missed a little over the past months: his serve. It's working extremely well so that's why he feels comfortably from the baseline.
Next is Youzhny and it's time to make the move to the quarter finals.

Good luck Roger and keep doing that well.

cont
'A star is born he is very talented." Boris was an excellent commentaor for the match
Those were the words that he Boris, spoke following Roger's win over Pete Sampras.

Hello Roger
Congtatualtions on your win --I have always enjoyed watching David play
As you said a great returner and clean hittter of the ball .He should have won some majors during his career.
However, you played & served very well against a dangerous opponent
Good luck for tonight
Kindest regards
Margaret
