Last eight in Paris

10.11.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger secured his spot in the quarter-finals of the BNP Parisbas Masters thanks to an easy 6-2, 6-4 win over Richard Gasquet today.

"I think I played really well," Roger said. "I had good timing from the baseline. A little bit of a scare in the second set but that was because of some incredible shot-making by Gasquet."

Roger came out firing and broke the Frenchman in the opening game, dropping just two points in four service games in set number one. Roger captured another break early in the second set, but Gasquet suddenly caught fire and fought back with a re-break. But our champ secured one more break at 3-3 and wrapped up everyhting thanks to solid service games.

Roger will now face Argentina's Juan Monaco (ATP 34) in the last eight at the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy on Friday.

Hello Roger
What a treat to see you playing brilliantly consistently, which indicates to me that Roger Federer is feeling both mentally & physically well. Your high serving % is unreal--well done and hope that it continues that way.
Thoroughly enjoyed the Richard Gasquet match. Yes, as you stated he suddenly caught fire in the second set-which in some ways was good as proved that you were more than capable of handling the situation!
Wishing you all of the best for QFs
Regards
Margaret

When you are calm and in your spot evryone on the other court line will suffer

The way you move the players on the depth of all court makes them loose thier power very fast which requires a beautifule variations of shots

so, keep going and good luck
