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.

What happened Roger? You played absolutely sublime tennis the first 2 sets and then you seemed to let it go in the 3rd set. I am very sad for you, 2 sets up and I thought you had the match sorted. This was not you, did you develop a physical problem? I am so disappointed. It was a nice touch waiting for him and walking out with him. Always the gentleman. You are still the greatest, above all be happy and be fit!

BUT YA PROBABLY ROGER WILL BE PASSING THE WORST YEAR OF HIS CAREER AFTER 2002....YET AS A FAN I WANT HIM PLAY.

I think Nadal will end his career with 20 or 21 slams !!! If Nadal reaches the final in any slam, he will win it for sure !!

I think Nadal has the chance to win...even if was Federer in the final.

IF ROGER FEDERER NEVER AGAIN WINS A MAJOR,
IF ROGER FEDERER NEVER AGAIN WINS A TENNIS MATCH,
HE IS AND WILL BE THE BEST TENNIS PLAYER OF ALL TIME.

after your loss to Djoko in melbourne you said lets talk in 6 months but here we are and you have only 1 title in 2011. be true to your fans and admit that your era is over and you will earn respect. honestly you were lucky against Youzhny coz any big hitter can beat you truly. anyway cry tonight. im defecting to Rafa who is the true Goat in the making. you will join the like of Hewitt and Safin soon mate!!
