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.

**Boting*** I know what you mean. I think there are many things we are not aware also from our Roger. I think it is not also easy for him after tough matches.
I know He wil be able to win at least another 2 GS. What is your opinion?
Best For All

Congratulations to your win!

Hard to say (based on this match) where you are standing.. i know only this:

solid backhand (nice)
difficult and windy conditions (weird ball bounces and misses)
A not-so-good-second-set (stupid errors)
back problems? (i've seen you touch your back couple of times)
maybe not the best day? (if so you still came trough -> so that's nice!)
the lenght in some returns and in some shots was not really good.
too passive on some shots. (vs top10s not enough)
