Quarters in Basel

23.10.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger reached the quarter finals at the Swiss Indoors today with a 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 win against Denis Istomin.

"Tough matches like this one is just what I need right now. They also give me self-confidence. I am happy with my performance," Roger said.

The Swiss fans were rather silent as Istomin broke Roger's serve to take a 3-2 lead and later served out the opening set. One break was enough for Roger to take the second set later on. He started well in the decider, not making use of two break chances, though. Things finally changed in Roger's favour when he broke for a 2-1 advantage and then continued strong.

Roger has played Pospisil once before, in 2011 in the Montreal Masters when he was ranked 100+. Roger won 7-5, 6-3.
I think he's less of a threat than Dimitrov.

Congratulations Roger on your win today so relieved you made it through. Thanks also to SHEAR for the link to view the game. Fantastic moment and such a privilege. Go forward now Roger with confidence and determination. Kia Kaha, Be Strong and Stay Strong. In Health and Happiness,
Alice!! Kinda weird seeing you place Dimitrov who's game is similar to yours and so surreal how you attached his backhand. Maybe need to send notes to self when you are up against the likes of Rafa.

TB = Tiebreaks.
Roger was always going to have an edge there. Earlier this year, Dimitrov lost a tie break to Murray 7-0 after playing well the entire match.
