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!

Oh Roger, I could not believe what I was seeing with the match with Canas but that is perfectly O.k. even though I know you are not happy with it. Just look forward to the next tournament and you will be fine. We all still think the world of you and wish

Hi Roger, another thing.... get rid of the red shirt... blue is the colour for you!! But also I have to say I worry that all is not well with you... the body language is not what it was. Please, please take care, and do what you have to - we will always

Roger, just a little bad luck, besides, the number one player in the world... is you... he is just a lucky loser, you will be able to beat him a thousand times more....

Love you!!! Pam

Disappointing loss, Roger some magnificent shots but the errors spoiled your chances.
I'm sure you will take lessons from it as you always do.
All the best

Take a rest and think about it.

Dear Roger, I am drained after that match! I am sure you are hurting right now, but next time you'll get him! You played MUCH better than last week... shame you let him off the hook at 3-0 in the final set. Don't be disheartened... it was a great match.
