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!

The situation looks better right now (a long 2-0 in the 3rd), but every tennis player knows a match is not over till the last point.
But we fans all around the world keep united, are patient and think only positive.

Federer is working Canas. Broke his 1st service game. Fed just needed time to study his game. As all of us know that he has the ability to study opponents game right on the court, as opposed to many other players.
Go Roger!!!

kuetschuek, that's awesome!
I am doing the same. Just looking at my screen and managing the nerves. But I feel better now. Roger will turn this around. He has the momentum.

Have you ever had so many fans supporting you and shouting virtually during one of your matches as today?
I guess, this is the match of the season, and some poor fans like me must exploit their imagination in front of some numbers from the live scores…
