Roger avance

14.05.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Our Roger was on fine form this evening beating Starace 6-1, 6-2 in just over 50 minutes. Starace came up with some beautiful passing shots but just not enough of them as our Champ gave him a salutary lesson in life at the top of the tennis tree. Now all we need is for Roger to carry this on through to the next round and beyond.

Next up will either be Gilles Simon (ATP 17) or Mikhail Youzhny (ATP 30).

Not everyone on this website hates Nadal. I admire him very much. There's no way you can't be in awe of his fighting spirit. I love Federer too. To be a fan of one does not mean you cannot be a fan of another. To be a fan of tennis you can't help but admire all the men at the top of their game like Djokovic, Murray, etc.
Roger for me will always be the most sublime tennis player of them all but I respect that others have different preferences. To each their own.

We respect and never question RN's fighting spirit, but don't you think it s mirable that EG who fully attacked him but still lost. He d have won this match with 50 to 13 winners and 15 to 0 aces. ATP is destroying the heart of sports,offensive games. Hard courts and grass courts are kept slower and slower these days, but they do not dare to bring back speedy clay like last year Madrid blue clay.

Roger attack his backhand and improve your backhand strokes to make nadal uncomfortable. make nadal run a lot to harass his knee also.

I hate murray! He doesn't harass nadal on clay court where he needs to play good for Roger but he does relatively well on hard court where he should not play good for nadal.

Very well said, we should respect all the tennis players whilst knowing that. Roger is KING!
I think this sentiment would only be echoed by. Roger himself. (although I don't think. Roger would admit to being KING) lol

Roger attack Nadal's backhand which is his uncomfort zone! Nadal tactic is making a opponent as much uncomfortable as possible. you gotta make nadal uncomfortable too and play in your comfort zone to produce winners! your talent is a lot better so you wlll win if you just harass his backhand making him uncomfortable and unsecured.

As much as everyone on this site hates Nadal, you have to admire his grit and determination. Amazing how he beat Gulbis. Steroid/drug talk is bullshit. He is tested like all the players. Delpo, Tsonga and Murray are out. Still some hurdles for Roger. Look to Nadal for inspiration.
