Roger advances

14.08.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger has secured a spot in the round of the last sixteen in Cincinnati thanks to a 6-3, 7-6(7) victory against Germany's Philipp Kohlschreiber.


After missing last week`s event in Montreal Roger made his first appearance on the North American hardcourt since Indian Wells. "It was important to play a clean match. I had a few tough weeks, months behind me, I was happy to play a clean match. I told myself I was not going to come back until I felt no pain in my back. Eventually I started to workout very hard," Roger said.

There is absolutely no spark and for every good forehand he hits, he is hitting 3 bad ones. Oh dear. Hopefully he can forget the first set and switch on in the second.

Roger .. Throw that 90 sq inch racquet of yours into the dustbin.
You are no longer younger to use that effectively.
Bring back the new 98 sq inch prototype. Learn to use it quickly.

This match is very painful to watch. Roger is not himself. Where did the maestro go. I feel so bad for him, I hope he can turn this match around :(

Can someone tell me how bad the damage is after Cincy if Roger doesn't make it? I'm worried.,,
