Roger rushes into |next round

12.03.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Our Roger had a ‘scary’ moment yesterday – but not on court where he again showed all of his skills to romp through 6-3, 6-1 against the Croatian Ivan Dodig. Dodig’s game was full of errors including a double fault on match point which allowed our champ to wrap up the match in 61 minutes. Something slightly worrying was that Roger tweaked his back during the match but as he said:


"At the end I tweaked it a little bit, but it's not the first time it's happened in my career, it's happened during Grand Slams, during tournaments, in practice. It's just something you learn to deal with". This was our champ’s 890th career win bringing him level with Connors, Lendl and Vilas as the only men to have won that number of matches in the open era.


Oh yes – that ‘scary’ moment? A 4.7 magnitude earthquake struck near Indian Wells. It happened before the day’s matches had begun at around 10.00 when Roger was still in the house where he is staying with his family. His family were outside but our champ was in the house and ran outside fast. “I didn’t know how long it was going to last, if it was going to get worse from there, or if the worst was already past,” he said. “It was a very strange feeling to have because you see the windows shaking and you look up and realize you’re under a structure. It was quite scary for a second there.”

Hi. Roger,
I actually felt something was not right with you at the beginning of the match ! You seemed a little frantic ?
But now I know about the earth quake, I'm sure this played a part. Very frightening especially when you have a young family!

like the true pro that you are, you played a great match even with the mishap with your back!!! You masked your pain very well and carried on to win!!
Amazing !!!!!!
Roger, please take care, good luck for next match🍀🍀🍀🍀

Hola Roger!!!!!
Espero que ya estés bien de tu espalda y que solo sea otro malestar pasajero. Tus fans en el mundo entero rezamos por que no tengas nunca ninguna lesión. Aunque Stan jugo muy bien anoche, tu eres nuestro héroe y el mejor de todos los tiempos, gánale "cariñosamente" . Cuidate
Te queremos

1-How are Roger? Yesterday was beautiful! Great mix of amazing shots. Love your technique it's so impressive. Keep going.

Crazy about your orange shirt, cool surprise, it suits you, looking stunning. Your legs are so beautiful Roger! Nice to see you under the sun.

Hopefully the back thing is not too serious (´・_・`) I'll pray for your total recovery, don't worry my love, you'll see everything will be just fine.

Congratulations Roger! not only for the great match but also for placing 3rd in the Sports Illustrated mag, Power Players. The ATP staff did a great job... a pleasure to read again and again.Thank you staff.

I wish and pray to God that your back will be ok for the next match. It is so unfortunate. Wishing you the best and praying for you.
God bless always, and always. Good luck against Wawrinka.
Love you and always will. You are so deserving. Thank you.

I experienced a 3.7 earthquake in London of all places, two/three years ago. I was at the computer and felt the room sway and an enormous whoosh sound. Yes indeed scary and I have also witnessed the enormous horrific damage caused in L'Aquila, Italy in April 2009.

Fingers crossed there are no more tremors, Roger. X
