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".

***And GNAG ** do you realy believe that Federer can come with this kind of
games against one of the top ten players ??? This boy is nr 109 on the ranking
list so fasten seat belts when he faces the big guns.....

You are wrong because you dont have any knowledge about tennis

Federer game is far below par !!! but logic against someone who is a great
talent and is 10 years younger !! Conclusion match is not over yet !!

Boting's feeble mind can't comprehend Federer's skills
06/03/2012 | 05:09 PM
wow.....what a drop shot............knew u wud turn it around champ...just go for it noe

Goffin is only playing this way bcoz he has nothing to lose. Almost all his shots are landing close to the baseline even when federer hits a good shot. But still our champ will come thru
