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.

Can you say those words when he was in his prime? Nobody is the best forever, but you can try until you're satisfied. If you can meet with triumph and disaster and treat those two impostors just the same

Roger fans,

We have to accept the fact that now tennis is not the only thing in Roger life. Also, Roger has to accept the fact that if he intend to win another GS, he needs to rethink his game. Again and again and again his backhand hurt him.

To be honest, it is time to retire. I do not believe that Roger can win another GS. He never had lose a match in GS when he won the 2 first sets. Never ever.

Goodbye Roger. We love you, but you are past. You wrote brilliant pages in tennis history.

I'm so sorry. Your body language has not been as motivated/fierce since you beat Djokovic. Your problem is motivation. You still have the skill.
