Roger books spot in quarters

01.08.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger booked a spot in the quarter-finals of the London Olympics with a 7-5, 6-3 win over Uzbekistan's Denis Istomin today.

Even though Roger was not at his absolute best, he secured a clear victory today in his quest for a first gold medal in the singles. Play only started after a rain delay of over an hour. Roger found an excellent start, breaking right in the second game. But his 3-0 lead then melted as Istomin broke back and Roger had to save two break points at 5-5 to then finally go all the way, securing the set with his third set point. Another early break in the second set was then enough for our champ to wrap up the encounter after 1 hour and 21 minutes. 

Roger will now play John Isner or Janko Tipsarevic in the quarter-finals.

Congratulations, dearest Roger for winning over Isner!
I was a bit tense in TB, but you did it. Thank you to tennis gods especially for the last point.
Take some rest and prepare for SF.
