Roger breezes into quarters

19.04.2007 | Tennis

Roger advanced into the quarterfinals of the Masters Series in Monte-Carlo after defeating Korean Hyung-taik Lee, 6-4, 6-3 in 65 minutes.

 

Roger stepped up a level today to cut a 6-4 first set win over his Korean foe who toppled Russian Mikhail Youzhny in the previous round. Both players held their respective serves in the first two games of the second set. Using his trademark shots, Roger seed went on to win the next three games to lead Lee at 4-1. The next two games saw both players held their respective serves at 5-2. Roger earned a match point but Lee fought back to stay in the game at 5-3, but our star finally sealed the match by converting his first of two match points.

 

Incidentally, today's victory was Roger's 499th career win. He will face Spain's David Ferrer (ATP 16) next.

I'm amazed at your improvement on clay. Giving Ferrer a bagel on clay is no easy task. Go Roger!
