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.

There we go again: ridiculous standards are imposed on Roger by some of his fans. What on earth has Roger to improve if he wins a 3rd round match in three sets and in a little over 100 minutes? I shouldn't bother about such idiotic somments, but sometimes I can't help reacting. Roger did an excellent job. Every opponent is different and every match is different and every day is different and every court is different. So against Mikhail Youzhny he will play a different match :-).
