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.

Dear Roger,

Congratulations! It was not an easy match to win, but you, as usual, handled it really well.

Good luck against Isner. He is a tough opponent, but I'm sure you will be alright.

It's a pity you and Stan lost, especially after winnig the first set quite easily, as it would seem, but sometimes it just happens. It was great to see you guys playing together again.

Best of luck :)

CONGRATULATIONS!!! thru in 81 min. great job. matters not how you start it's how you finish. and you did great. murray, djokovic, delpo, ferrer, and sharapova all in 3 setters today. ferrer still going as i write. olympic tennis scores are so weird. i'm sure you wanted to win, but you have dubs GOLD already so the loss is not so dramatic. hopefully this will give you more time to rest for singles. since you won #17,#7, & #1, anything you do is fine with me. good luck next match.
