Quarters in Rome

18.05.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger won his second round match against Juan Carlos Ferrero 6-2, 5-7, 6-1 today to reach the quarter-finals in Rome.

Roger managed his first break in the opening set in game number 6. After that, it was a one-sided show in favour of our champion. But after clearly taking the first set, Roger faced a more aggressive Ferrero in the second, as Roger lost a bit of his sharpness and committig a string of unforced errors in the midsection of the set. The two players held serve until the Spaniard finally broke to move 6-5 up and later take the set. Roger then flipped the swith for the decider, grabbing a break in the second game and another one in game number six to book his spot in the round of the last eight.

Roger will play Andrea Seppi in tomorrow's quarter final.

Absolutely brilliant match ! Congratulations on a great win. You are playing exceptional tennis. Relentless. Stunning shot making and serving. Ferrero certainly wanted to make his presence known that he was a former number 1, not making it an easy win at two sets.

Good luck with Seppi. Interesting to see who the crowds will cheer for. You have so many fans the world over. Although it probably will not affect your concentration at the task in hand. Stay hungry.

Always with you.

Great match - many of your shots were truly breathtaking but we're used to that - let's not forget that Ferrero was a No.1 player and did win the French Open so I knew he wouldn't be a walkover but felt confident that you would win nevertheless. A superb and exciting match. And our champ only took 19 more minutes than Nadal's 6-1 6-1 win. That's why he doesn't suffer the injuries other players do. Best of luck against Seppi. Love always, xxxxx

Hello Roger
What a wonderful match--we enjoyed watching it. [not that we do not always enjoy your matches] As usual some of your shots were quite extraordinary. Your movement, I am sure is better than ever--just amazing so quick and agile.
Wishing you all of the very best for QF match.
Kindest regards

I left out a bit in the middle - glad Ferrero wasn't humiliated, but I really did think your tennis was just better than ever. AUSGEZEICHNET +++
