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.

Roger is playing with VIGOUR again!!! Serving very well and hitting a lot of winners. It is looking VERY good after not having played since Wimbledon. You can win this and Cinncinatti. That will be very good from a points and ATP race point of view. I thi

The match was really a piece of cake for you,Roger.I think it was a great honour for Fognini to play against the world's number one,I can't understand why he seemed so upset when he was falling behind in the match.Any way ,it's perfect.Keep it up,Roger!

Another great match champ. Hewitt next, he may prove to be more difficult but over the last 4 or 5 years you have had his number easy. Good luck and stay positive xxx
