Next up: Tsonga in quarters

27.06.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger had to drop a set against Mikhail Youzhni today before eventually celebrated a strong 6-7(5), 6-3, 6-3, 6-3 victory.


Both players served well in the opening set, taking it into a tie-breaker. Roger jumped to a 4-1 lead - only to just enter a short sloppy phase and eventually drop the set by losing the tie-break 5-7.
He found his rhythm better and better, managing to break Youzhni twice in the second set. He then continued dictating the game and finally sealed the victory to reach his 29th consecutive grand slam quarter-final!

Roger will now play Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (ATP 19) of France on Wednesday.

Roger in semi is no doubt. If leading from the beginning, it will be a cruise.

The tweener with Dabul was at US OPEN 2010. But my judgement it si wrong. Go FEDERER.

While the others can put you to sleep
The Lion is rising up
Back to the 'peak'

While the the cheater cheats
There's a whole world
coming alive

With a step to the right
and a flick to the right
Only the slick and the quick
can survive

Then a little later
Read in the morning paper
How the Head hesitater
and the Head waiter

Where a Lion has work to do
He's not a thrilla in manilla
and he's not a caterpillar

He's a Lion that gives his friends

**ADI1008** has posted:
"A fact: Fed has NEVER won a tournament when he hits that damned tweener. Melbourne '05, US Open '09 and '10, & a few Master's tourneys."
However, this is wrong since in Qatar 2011, where Fed's sole trophy came this year, he had a wonderful tweener against Dabul.

So this is a very best timing to lift the 7nd Wimby and 17th GS Crown.

Best of luck in qf against Tsonga.
