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.

You are absolutely right, I saw on Roger face that he not only believes in himself but KNOWS that - whatever Dimi does - he will win. And this self-confidence and clever play gave him this victory. Tomorrow Pospisil, don't think we have to be so nervous like today before this match. Hope I'm right. Would like to see Rogi in the final.

@Fancyfree,

Dimitrov probably WAS a bit nervous or trying to do too much with some of his shots, but apart from the double faults, wasn't Roger's play heartening? He really stepped up on the pressure points.

I do admit I felt sorry for Dimitrov at times, mainly cuz it's hard to see his style (Roger's style) not win points.

watched the whole match - Rog's great but must tighten up more - top ten players will not let him off the hook so easily.

g;night all - it's 4am

Few thing's are V.important.
Roger Foot work.. Very Improved.
On Serve Fully Behind the Body.
Roger On Face Impression Look Much Confident.
Not Panic.
Selection of Shots very Improved.
Although few point's he got v.v.easy and many point he throw.
but....... i think those matches alway's help him to further come bk his confidence, and once he bk.. no one can beat him.. if u remember Novak winning Streak only one man Brooked which is Roger.

Great win & great news, now, our maestro is just 2 wins away from 100% qualifying for World Tour Finals, even if Raonic/haas win Bercy Masters --
