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.

Federinho my dearest, as brazilian I should have cheered for Bellucci, but impossible! I'll root for him in all his games but not the ones against you. Rest my dear! Love

That was a tough match and not as easy as it might have been - hope you get into your groove for the quarters. Best of luck against Kubot or Paire!

Well done Roger, that was a tough one for you. First time I have come across Bellucci, I was impressed by him, he tried very hard and played some nice tennis. He did create some chances. Unlucky you did not quite hold the second set, but that is tennis for you. I never thought you were in danger but you had to work for it making a nice game to watch. Congratulations and on to the next! Go on Rogi, win that one as well!

Congratulations! The TV is not transmitting the games, it was nerve-breaking to have to wait the score to update in the computer. So glad to see the check mark of winner next to your name! Hope the next games are transmitted. Good luck!
