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.

I am glad to hear from Roger that the heat didn't knock him out at this match. It was terribly hot there but it looks like all his practicing in Dubai helped him out on this. So glad you won Roger and much luck with your next one today. GO ROGER!!!!!
