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.

Who is the favorite to win Wimbledon? I am sorry to say its Nadal. I am still not sure about Novak quality of play on grass. But I can only hope he can pull this one. If Nadal wins this year, he will surpass Roger in two years at the most.

I can't understand.....

Feel very so sorry for Paul Annacone because of Federer stubborness and
arrogance by saying there would not be an other Wimbledon champion
than he or Nadal (lol)

Whatever happens, STILL, I doubt that there's another man to win such Fed's Slams.. Mauybe there are more strong players for these days.. BUT, you created a very fantastic career so far. VAMOS ROGER!! :)

... Slams if he really wanted to. That is the difference between Nadal and Roger. You see, given his natural skills Nadal has no business winning Wimby or US or Aus but he does! That's pure attitude and motivation. That's something Roger has been lacking for a while now.

ROGER FEDERER,
IF U READ THIS, JUST REMEMBER ONE LOSS AGAINST TSONGA(WHO DEFEATED NADAL IN AEGON) IS NOT THE END OF THE WORLD...........JUST DON'T THINK OF RETIRING..........IF WE HAVE A HEADACHE WE DON'T CUT OUR HEADS....SO DON'T EVEN THINK OF RETIRING AND ""KEEP WORKING HARD AND TRY TO RECTIFY THE MISTAKES"".........
BEST OF LUCK FOR THE US OPEN...

Roger I never second guess you. I know how much you wanted to win but it was not to be. That makes me sad but I love you just the same. You will always be number one with me!
