Roger battles through

01.06.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger fought a few ups and downs against Nicolas Mahut today, eventually booking a spot in the round of the last 16 with a 6-3, 4-6, 6-2, 7-5 win.

Roger made an excellent start, breezing through the opening set. In the second, Mahut converted his first break point in the 10th game to take the set. Roger reacted right away, taking the next set easily after a first break in the third game. Seemingly on course, Roger then took a slight detour in the final set after saving a break point in the sixth game to then secure a break himself straight after - only for Mahut to break back. But Roger wrapped everything up with one more break and a final solid service game. 

In round four at Roland Garros, Roger will meet David Goffin (ATP 109) for the first time. The Belgian entered the draw as a "Lucky Loser".

Congrats! Rog!
Time to really step it up, coming into the fourth round.
But we dont have to remind you of that-youve been there so many times before you know how to do it.
ALL THE BEST AGAINST Goffin (who is that?)

Congratulation, every win in major is a new record. Mahut put his best fight today, I am happy you keep him at the bay. Hope your next round match is a bit easy.Good luck.

Well done, wonderful shots!
Monsieur Mahut was quite inspired today, I guess he was happy having the honor of playing you, he had no pressure at all.

Hope you discover as fast as possible the solutions against another one who hasn't got anything to lose nor to prove next round.
