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.
