Roger moves on

17.08.2007 | Tennis

Roger booked his path to the quarter-finals with a 7-6(5), 7-5 win over Marcos Baghdatis (CYP).

 

While Thursday's 40-degree Celsius heat drained many players, Roger’s habit of training in Dubai left him all but immune to the sweltering Midwest. "The problem is more the humidity. The sweat is all over. The hand gets wet, and it's hard to hold the grip," he said. "Dubai was way hotter than this today, so this is actually pretty mild."

 

Of his opponent in the next round, Nicolas Almagro, he said: "It was dangerous playing him. He's got a wonderful kick serve, great motion and nice forehand. He's a danger player from the back. Massive power and he's a big guy.”

 

The match is scheduled to start around 2 p.m. on Center Court today.

Dear Roger

Congratulations to Roger on winning the third round!!!!!

While you were playing, your face told me that the weather was so hot. I just knew not only the sweat on your face but it was all over; especially the most important was your hand.
