Roger cruises through

03.09.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 2

Roger defeated Marin Cilic 6-3, 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 in the third round of the US Open today.

 

"The first and second set could've gone either way," Roger said after the match. "He was dominating more of the baseline rallies. I didn't think I was serving particularly well during that period. I knew I had work to do on my serve. I think the wind was tricky. It took some adjustments but I took the right ones and thought it was a very high-quality match."

 

Roger started well, only encountering a major problem at the end of the second set as he got broken in the last game off a big Cilic forehand that Roger couldn't get back.

With Cilic facing a break point while serving at 4-4 in the third set, he was warned by the chair umpire for a time violation. Cilic immediately double-faulted, giving Roger a 5-4 lead. In the fourth set Roger used his first match ball to win the match after 2:40 hours.

Our champ will now play Juan Monaco (ATP 36) in the next round.

It is nice to see that you go through week 2, Roger. It turns harder now, and you'll have to be prepared for the challenges which are going to come soon. Monaco is the next stage in the run for the title. I hope you'll be able to play such wonderful tennis and keeping advancing into next round. If you can manage to play your best tennis little by little, I am sure we are going to enjoy so much with you in New York.
All the best, champ. Good luck tonight and forever. :)
