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.

As well known Nalbandian is one of those players who are able to beat
Federer any time if they meet.
Besides Federer has indeed to improve as the next matches will not be that
easy anymore !!!

It s good that he won in straight sets. But I was a lot disappointed with his performances.He could not produce what he wished. I feel that nalbandian lost the match not Federer won it. So, Federer play well:)practice well.... We want you to beat Djokovic and Nadal.so,you have to work hard.....

Hi Rog, good stuff against David yesterday, sad to see him have an MTO tho. Looking forward to your match against Youzhny on Monday, should be a good one as he's a nice player to watch - hoping for lots of SHBH DTLs!! (from you of course). All the best luck for then, hope it stays fine and sunny for you. Love to you and all your family. xx
