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.

Well done Roger for playing what has been described by the commentators as the best match of the tournament so far. Milos is going to be a great player and you did well - very, very well - to come out on top. Good luck against Gasquet - another tricky customer on clay.

I think Raonic is the biggest opponent on your way to final match. Pls take care and focus on your game.
The title is your.
