50th straight victory on grass

28.06.2007 | Tennis

Roger won his 50th straight match on grass, beating Juan Martin Del Potro 6-2, 7-5, 6-1 to reach the third round at Wimbledon.

 

He had led 2-0 in the third set before rain halted play yesterday. When they resumed, Roger needed only 11 minutes to complete the match, winning three straight games before Del Potro held serve in the sixth game.

 

Roger broke the Argentine five times and saved the only break point he faced. The four-time defending champion finished with 33 winners and made only 23 errors - one less than Del Potro.

 

"It was done quickly like I was hoping, but I was ready to go five sets in case," said Roger. "Fifty is a great number to achieve. I'm delighted about that but I haven't won the tournament."

 

Roger will next face Marat Safin. The Russian beat Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi of Pakistan 6-4, 6-2 7-6 (4).

 

"He's always a player who can upset anybody on any day. I hope he's not going to have one of those crazy good days against me," concluded Roger.

Dearest Roger,

I wish you all the luck in the world against Safin!

You were amazing yesterday, when you finished off the match in just 11 minutes! Poor DEl Potro did not know what hit him!

Love,

Sadhana

Roger,

Remember that Philipousis was well on his way to knocking Sampras out of Wimbledon when Pete was at his best before the scud was forced to retire with an injury. Also remember what Safin did to Pete in the final of the US open in 2000.
