Roger advances in three sets

14.03.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger survived an early storm from Milos Raonic before taking control to seal a 6-7(4), 6-2, 6-4 victory in Indian Wells on Tuesday.

"For me it was a difficult match," Roger said. "He`s probably seen me play a whole lot of times on TV which helps him out a bit. But I really did well. I hung in there and played a great second set."

Roger had some trouble with the Canadian`s power serving in the opening set but went on to show great tennis in the following sets and secure victory in just over two hours. He had never played the 21-year-old Raonic before and will now play Brazilian Thomaz Bellucci, who benefited from a walkover by Russian Nikolay Davydenko.

Good job roger
I wish you would have never played in MSG.
I think you tired yourself out then became sick
And now you feel a little bad.
Sure MSG was exciting but tournaments are even more so.
Anyway stay focused against belucci!

Roger!!! I love you!!! attack nadal's backhand when clueless by his good defense....cause nadal makes a lot of errors with backhand....repeat this pattern...you either win by a winner or by his backhand error.
