Roger marches on

06.07.2007 | Tennis

Roger put on an amazing showing against and Juan Carlos Ferrero in difficult conditions on centre court this afternoon before our world no.1 emerged victorious 7-6 (7-2) 3-6 6-1 6-3.

 

Roger’s comment: "It was really, really tough conditions, very gusty wind, so I'm happy to come through it. OK, a set is lost but the match isn't lost. I'm happy with my game, it's my first match of the second week and we'll see what happens. The pressure is always the same as defending champion at Wimbledon."

 

After play having been suspended on Friday due to rain, Roger resumed serving at a tricky 5-5, 40-40 but came through the game and raced through the resulting tie breaker 7-2 to take the first set. Ferrero fought back, however, and broke Roger in the seventh game of the second to shock the crowd and the top seed 6-3.

 

Thoughts of an upset did not last long, though, as Roger stepped it up and lost just four more games en route to a semi-final showdown with Andy Roddick or Richard Gasquet.
