Quarters in Basel

02.11.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger made it through to the quarter-finals after defeating Jarkko Nieminen 6-1, 4-6, 6-3 at the Swiss Indoors today.

It looked like an easy win in the beginning as Roger raced through the opening set. But three double faults left him a double break down in the second as Nieminen grabbed a 4-1 lead and later the set.But our champ found his serve soon after in the decider as he dropped a single point on his first serve and secured one break which gave him just the lead he needed to make it into the next round in Basel.

On the flip side, Roger's serve has been exceptional this year.

3rd best 1st serve points won (beaten only by Karlovic and Raonic)

2nd best 2nd serve points won (beaten by Nadal by less than 1%)

3rd best on service games won (beaten only by Isner and Karlovic)
