Roger in quarters

24.10.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

The world No. 1 and home favourite is bidding to win his sixth Swiss Indoors crown, and enters this year's tournament as defending champion. Only once has Roger failed to take home the trophy since he first triumphed in 2006, and he survived a second-set blip to win 6-3, 6-7(6), 7-5 against Bellucci. 

Roger went into a 3-0 lead within 10 minutes. As is typical of a champs performance, a solitary break was all he needed to close out the set, although he did have to save two break points against him as he attempted to serve it out. Bellucci fought back early in the second, taking Roger to a tie break after games had gone with serve. Bellucci stormed into a 6-2 lead to create four set points. Our Champ saved all four but eventually relented as the Brazilian levelled the match. Forced to a third set, Roger came out fighting, creating a break point in Bellucci's first service game. He failed to convert on that occasion  but eventually made the decisive breakthrough helped by a Bellucci double fault. By this time Roger was back in control and closed out the match delighting his fans who had been sitting on the edge of their seats for the last two sets. 

Roger will meet the winner of Lukasz Kubot and Benoit Paire in the last eight.

@ Paddy T, I don't mind the website, but yes it is spamming.
Look up the definition. Infact, just look at the comments under the writing Competition article.
