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.

Well done Roger, a hard-fought victory is what you needed. Extreme conditions and you responded well: winning. If Baghdatis choked or not, it doesn't really matter. You're in the quarters and that's what counts. Almagro is very ddagerous, you already know

ESPN2 did not televise the match and The Tennis Channel couldn't get in to my neighborhood, which is manipulated by Cablevision. But I was glad to find out Roger had been through.

Congratulations again!
I had never seen you so wet. I guess it wasn’t comfortable for both of you to play in that heat, but fortunately MarBag did funnier and more mistakes than you.
I wish the weather cools down so you can wear again the nice black T-s
