Roger races on

09.08.2007 | Tennis

Roger played to perfection today, blowing out the candles on qualifier Fabio Fognini 6-1, 6-1 at the Montreal Masters.

Chasing his 50th career title, our star was utterly dominant against an unknown Italian opponent ranked 139. With a first set which was over in 18 minutes, the challenger had little hope as Roger won a 14th match on the trot in Canada. "I'm very content," he said after the match. "You don't expect them this fast. By the time I sat down at the end, I was only just starting to get warm."

Roger captured nearly three-quarters of the 37 first-set points, with Fognini winning his first game at 0-5 to wild applause. The second set was slightly more competitive but the outcome in 44 minutes was never in doubt as Roger broke four times to reach the quarter-finals against either Lleyton Hewitt or Dominik Hrbaty after 44 minutes on court.

In Montreal, the first time i saw Roger in real, in 3 dimensions.

I'm happy to see him only from far, i cannot approach Roger. There is always a crowded group running after Roger for autographs. People seems happy yelling joyfully Roger, Roger !!!

Roger,

You are playing Hewitt next. He is being coached by Tony Roche! It will be a great match. But Hewitt is mentally down against you. So, be confident but be aware!

Good luck!
