Round three in Paris

31.05.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Our Roger came through the 3rd round with a commanding 6-3, 6-4, 7-5 against Benneteau in 91 minutes today.


Every time the Benneteau raised his game so did our champ – even with a break down in the final set Roger broke back at 4-5 for 5-5 and went on to win the set 7-5. Benneteau gave him his stiffest test so far and there was some delightful touch tennis volleys between the two. In the end Roger’s champion’s approach outclassed his opponent. 


He will now meet either Sam Querry or Giles Simon in the next round.

Roger, i just enjoyed and suffered three hours of marvellous tennis.
Incredibly happy to see you winning your match number 900.
Funny enough, after the third set I just prepared myself for a 5 set-match. It never occurred to me, that the match could end after 4 sets with you loosing it. It was kind of out of the question.
Have a good rest champ.

Eh, finally, I was really thrilled and afraid that Roger may lose, as Simon over came my expectations although I knew he is a great player and already defeated Roger twice. Congrats Roger!!

And he has a +4 differential of winners and UEs, while Simon has -15.

The genius at work once again,Roger you are so wonderful! So, so pleased you got there! Very nerve racking at the end, started to fear a winning match lost. Sorry Roger, I should have known better, you ARE the best! Congratulations Roger and a big THANKYOU!

I almost fainted when you fell and they showed in the slow motion how you landed on your right hand and twisted your rignt ankle. SO WORRY ! i PRAYED AND PRAYED. So happy that you came back in your 4th set and finally the 5th set. At one point I had to leave the TV set and went to my room. So happy you are ok . so happy. Thank you and congratulations.
