Still to drop a set!

03.06.2007 | Tennis

Roger matched John McEnroe's record streak of 11 straight-set wins in Grand Slam matches by beating Mikhail Youzhny 7-6 6-4 6-4 to reach the French Open quarter-finals today.

 

John McEnroe had set the best mark in the Open era in 1984 from the second round at Wimbledon through to the U.S. Open quarter-finals. “It was not easy. But I stayed totally calm,” Roger commented and added: “I don’t know why, but the fans here are supporting me in a great way”.

 

Roger turned on the style after a sluggish start today to extend to 10-0 his perfect record against Russia's Youzhny, seeded 13th here. "He's dangerous on every surface, he moves well, and I knew I had to be careful. He challenged me at first and I had to stay calm and react, which I did. I'm pleased with my match,” Roger said after the encounter, lasting two hours and 25 minutes.

 

He next meets Spaniard Tommy Robredo, seeded ninth. Roger clearly leads the head-to-head 7-0. He also beat Robredo on his way to the Australian Open title 2007.

Rafael Nadal will play his next round against Lleyton Hewitt – certainly a match to look forward to – on Monday.

We are always relieved when you win in 3 sets :)
even if that means a shorter time of watching you play :(
But maybe longer matches (next 2) could be a good training for the dreamed final? (not only physically but mentall

I read Hewitt said you won't beat Nadal. He said conditions favour Nadal. I say like you said last year. No-one is invinsible, not you nor Nadal. If Nadal is invinsible then why bother with the French Open. Why not give him the trophy on day 1? You came
