Quarters in Paris

03.06.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger came from a set down to beat "Lucky Loser" David Goffin (ATP 109) 5-7, 7-5, 6-2, 6-4 in the round of the last 16 at the French Open today.

"David has played an extraordinary tournament," Roger said in an interview after the match. "I congratulate him from the bottom of my heart."

Roger had a rough start into the match as the youngster played fresh and confident to take the first set. Roger only managed his first break towards the end of the second set, levelling in sets and giving our champ some room. Roger then found his rhythm and was not in any further trouble from there on.
Roger will now either meet Juan Martin del Potro (ATP 9) or Tomas Berdych (ATP 7) in the quarter-finals.

Nadal may be steaming, but who cares? He always does that during clay, but there are many players who can take him down on other surfaces. Moreover everyone knows Monaco against Nadal would be a washout. Look at the Davis cup last year. Only Fed, Djoko, Delpo have any chances against Nadal on clay. But that aside, our Champ was just doing what was enough till now (reading all the new players' skills). Now I'm sure he'll be serious enough since he knows all his opponents going forward

Hey Champ, hope you are resting well and getting ready for showtime now. Last 3 important matches. From here, the matches for everyone seem to be tough. All are in great form. So focus and stay strong during the important moments (unlike last year's finals). Some top players may save all their energy for this part of the season but you are the only player who remains consistent throughout the season. No wonder you are the GOAT!!! You're gonna rock this season. Enjoying your tennis forever.

I meant TV station crap (not crab) and warrior mode, not warrior war!
Seriously Rog, the Nadal guy... well seriously I'd be Almagro, I don't know if I'd step on the ground tomorrow (of course not but I would not do that, I'd fight till I die). Anyway, you and Djoko need to "abre los ojos" Rafa is steaming! So I guess you guys wouldn't want to be destroyed like Monaco!? So, better wear the pit-bull attitude ASAP!!!

I haven't post since a while so great for Indian Wells, Madrid, Rome... I haven't been able to watch your full games at Roland between power cut and TV stations crab match choices, but very cute you and Goffin (a country fellowman) "Un bisou! Un bisou!" Really touching! But OK man, now the joke is over, time to go on warrior war, point by point! We want to see Roger, the great defender! Roger the genius striker! Roger, the lovely killer! Again point by point! Every single point!!!

Good luck Roger for the quarters!! Wish that you close him in straight sets.
Your on court interview after match with Goffin was nice to watch. I had trouble believing initially that he was wearing your Nike shoes and playing with you ;)
Lets GO Roger Lets GO!!!

Stay Healthy and Take Care!!

Good match against Goffin such a new good player and what a treat for him to play his idol. Del potro can be tough so just be tougher good luck and I always wish you the best and to come out the winner.
