Roger battles through

09.05.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger came from a set down to beat Milos Raonic 4-6 7-5 7-6 (7-4) in the second round of the Madrid Masters today.

Roger had a rough day today, especially due to the young Canadian's serve - he fired 21 aces in a match that lasted just over two hours. Raonic reached a 100%-quote on points won upon first serve that landed in the field. Roger only saw his first break point towards the end of the second set. Fortunately, he improved on his own serve gradually throughout the match and was eventually able to wrap everything up in the tie-breaker.

Roger will now meet Richard Gasquet (ATP 18) in the third round in Spain's capital. Our champ won nine out of the eleven matches the two have played - losing 2 out of 3 on clay, though.

Raonic shot more than 20 aces and you...well, you were amazing! What a class, Roger. What a class!

Congratulations, Champ!

Best regards.

Your match against Raonic was totally amazing. Good match against Gasquet today. I have 100% hope that you would win this tournament and overtake Nadal (who lost today) to World No.2 Wish you all the best!

Your match against Raonic was epic. Your patience paid off and the better man won, but it was a nail-biter. Good luck...win the whole thing and you move to number 2. Regardless, you are always number one with me.

Glad to see it was business as usual on the blue clay today Roger, much better for my own health! Good luck against David tomorrow and hope you maintain your 100% record with him. Your spirits must also have been lifted by the surprise defeat of Nadal today, we'll see what happens at the business end of this tournament. Lots of love to you and your family/team. GO ROGER!!!
