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.

Great match Rpger, a little suffered, but you won and that's what counts. Good, I watched all and I can definitely say youìre in form and you can go to the final. I would like to see a Federer-Del Potro, thatìs my desire. Congratulations again and good luck for the future.

Hello Roger,

After the 3 sets in Indian Wells this match promised to be a close one. As Belluci himsels said, your serve was impossible to break, so I stayed optimistic, knowing that a match is won by the player who makes the last point. And you proved me right once again :-). I understand why those with tickets must have been delighted to get to watch you for 2.5 hours :-).
I am looking forward to your next match against Paire and wish you all the very best for it.

**NEW YORKER** good comment. i agree with you. the fact that he took the #1 spot away from 3 of the top 4 who are 5-6 yrs younger than him shows his greatness. it doesn't matter if djokovic gets it back. he's 25. roger at 25 was in the midst of a record consecutive 237 wk run at #1. at age 31 he is #1 again. yes,ageless. his age group are either retired or low in the rankings. they have been injured, had surgery, or just not playing well. except ferrer (30) who is 0-13 against roger. love RF!!!
