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.

BOTING he did not hurt his wrist... if it was that he would've called his physio in... That he didn0t do it makes me think its his back which, unfortunately, has no arrangement at this point.

Just following the scoring. But it looks like his quarterfinal streak will come to an end :(. And he was playing so well in the first three matches and, apparently, in the first set of this match, too...

This match has cost him the title even if he wins.

Interesting to see if Roger's trainer comes on.

You are watching a former great lose his touch, it happens he has achieved so much he hasn't got the gas anymore and he can still win by a bit of luck. Tsonga is going to rip him apart though. If the pusher Simon can beat you then you have issues.
