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.

Wonderful match to watch. You were unbelievable in 1st and 3rd sets. Bit of ablip in the middle, but I'm glad really that Don't overdo it, but it's all a bonus in Rome now. If Nadal wins, he'll be number two again, so it may be out of your hands, but you'll have picked up some points anyway.
Wish Juan Monaco had beaten Djokovic in his extraordinary new outfit (Djok's, that is).

Dear Rogerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr,

Some of the finest moments in tennis today, as I would say it, you have a great backhand working well this time, some fine tuning I guess. Let them be firm and crispy, and you will soon be number one! Keep the tennis fire burning in you. Play like a calm warrior, the battle is on!!!

Go RF!
God Bless.
