Roger battles into quarters

15.03.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger got by Thomaz Bellucci 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 to book a spot in the quarters in Indian Wells.

"These are the wins that sort of almost feel better, to be quite honest, because when you're playing great, it's simple, it's easy, right?" But when it's not going your way and things are difficult, that's kind of the good wins," Roger said.

For the second day in a row, he dropped the opening set but he then broke Bellucci in the first and ninth games of the second to level the match. The final set went with serve until Roger broke the 50th-ranked Brazilian in the 10th game, converting his second match point when the left-hander hit a forehand long.

It was Roger's 74th consecutive victory against a player outside the top 20, and he has won 36 of 38 matches since the US Open. After a well deserved rest today he will play either Juan Martin del Potro or Denis Istomin on Friday.

Hi Rog, Congradultions with your win against Bellucci!. It wasn'easy for you, it was obvious that you were not feeling 100%, henceforth great that you won!. Try and relax with your day off to gain some strength for your next opponent Del Potro. The media are now calling you The Ice Man, because they never usually see you sweat!!. Hopefully you and your family are feeling much beter. Take care.

I'M SO MUCH DELIGHTED WITH THE DISPLAYS I'VE WATCHED IN THE RECENT PERIOD AND ESPECIALLY THE PAST 2 DAYS UNDER ALL TYPES OF PRESSURE, THOUGH I'M TIRED AT WORK DUE TO VERY LITTLE SLEEP INTERRUPTED BY THE MARCH TIMINGS!
WHEN ROGER'S HAIR IS FLYING WITH THE MOVEMENTS, NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT...

3-Try this my love mix orange juice, carrot juice a piece of ginger, strawberries and drink it, it is super nutritious and contains lots of antioxidants, it'll give you energy and tastes great, also eat lots of blueberries, nuts, green pepper with extra virgin olive oil, green pepper contain more vitamin C than anything else also the kiwi fruit, drink green tea with honey, also honey with lemon and finally drink some yogurt so your stomach won't get irritated with so much acid.

4-Onions and pineapple are great too I don't know if you like them. Infuse some eucalypt or the oil and inhale the steam it will help to decongest. Get some help from nature nothing better and it works.

Rest and get well fortunately you have a day to do it, may it be beneficial. I hope I could take care of you, respectfully of course.
