Roger to meet Roddick

24.03.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger secured his participation in week 2 in Miami with a 6-2, 7-6(3) victory over 19-year-old American Ryan Harrison today.

Roger battled at some points, especially towards the end of the second set, when he let a 5-2 lead slip away and was even confronted with a break-point at 5:5. But once again, Roger showed excellent tennis when under pressure and closed out the match after 84 minutes for his 40th victory in the past 42 matches. He has now extended his winning streak against players outside the top 20 to 77 matches.

Roger will now play Andy Roddick - winner of the tournament 2010 - in the third round on Monday. Roger is 21-2 against Andy Roddick, one of the defeats going back to Miami in 2008.

Congratulations, Roger! That was a very good entry in the tournament. There were some moments..you've strugled against to the "dark side" but even there you show to the world what a class sportsman you are. Unique.
Now get some good rest and good luck for tomorrow with Roddick.

Best regards, Champ!

Darling Champion Roger:

Congrats. on the win. You prevailed in the 2nd set despite being cheated out of two points once by an embecile in the crowd and once more by the lineswoman. Superb play my hero. You looked more like the teenager light on your feet covering the court & running a marathon to get to balls. Yet u kept your cool like the experienced Great Champion and gentleman. Luv u tons. Good Luck with A.Rod

Dearest Roger,
Congratulations for winning the second round. I was able to watch most of the match. A little angry about the guy who cried out "Out!" toward the end of the second set, but glad that you came out all right.
Good luck against Roddick tomorrow.
God bless you!

Bravo, Roger! It is no surprise: time and again you have come up with anwers when the challenge changed.! That is a very big thing! They keep hoping some up-and-coming player will get the better of you: but you have an answer. ****MODESTI, no one forgot who is currently ranked number one. Notice, the small caps? Why bring a begruding spirit here? It is like the man's whom your favour. The tactics used through years have shown us that.
