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.

That was a tough one, Roger. This year's RG has proved to be a hard challenge for you. Maybe you're not feeling at your very best, but the thing is that your displays on court look way far from the ones we are used to see this year.
Tomorrow in your 32nd QF's in a row you face Del Potro, an always-complicated guy who's going to be so consistent. I hope you can find your best and hopefully, we'll se you in semis a year later.

Wish you the best, master. Keep on going and stay focused. Allez!

All the luck in the world for your match against Juan Martin tomorrow Roger, hope the sun shines on Suzanne Lenglen to speed conditions up for you and assist your cause. Hope you can play as well as you need to get through to the semis. Lots of love to you and your family/team. Love the twitter pic of you with Micaela Bryan as well - it's great. GO ROGER!!!

Dear Roger
Congratulations! You showed again what a great HEART you have and how nice you treated your young, but a tough opponent!
Hope you will be healthy and fit enough for Delpo. He has the thigh bandaged but it means nothing. He is healthy otherwise he couldn't play and win! So, you need the caution!
Wish you all the best and good luck dearest Roger!
Go, Roger, gooooooooooo!
Love, Mimi
