Roger right on track

27.03.2007 | Tennis

Roger will get a chance to revenge his defeat by Guillermo Canas in Indian Wells after setting up a fourth round meeting with the Argentinean at the Sony Ericsson Open, who busted his 41-match win streak two weeks ago at Indian Wells.

 

Roger struggled for a time not only with heavy-hitting Nicolas Almagro (ESP/29) but also with chair umpire Mohammad Lahyani and a few lines people with whom he had issues, but he was never in serious trouble in a 7-5, 6-3 win. He clearly found his rhythm at the start of the second set, breaking Almagro three times in a row.

 

Asked if he was ready for Roger, Canas replied: "Yeah, I am ready. Yes, I'm ready. I'm ready to enjoy it again, to be in the center court against the No. 1 in the world," he said confidently. Roger doesn't often have more unforced errors (26) than winners (24), but he did against Almagro, and his lack of consistency did annoy him. "If I look at the whole match, I think it was a very good one and I can build on that for the next match."

 

The next one is certainly one of the exciting matches a great number of fans have been hoping for!

Someone made a comment that Sampras could be the best ever - and how could he (Sampras) be best ever when he deliberately avoided the clay season in Europe during his heydey except the French Open. C'mon be real!

How did you lose today's match? I still didn't figure it out. Canas played same way as nadal. He put the ball in play, returning the ball and letting you to hit one, two, three extra shots than usual. Instead of focusing into your own game, you lost the

Every Cloud has a silver lining. You will make yourself stron and better prepared for the clay season and ultimately lift the French Open.But, I have to say that you didn't seem interested on winning today, esp in third set. You beat yourself tod

I am so disappointed and so sorry for your loss today. I was looking forward to this match. You had the match within your grasp and uncharacteristically you let him off the hook. You should have put him away when you had the chance and you had many. He g

I am really sad that Roger lost against Canas the 2nd time in a row. It would not have bothered me that much had Federer lost the game being outplayed by his opponent. He lost it not because Canas played better, but because there was a little hole somewhe
