Not an easy task

02.09.2007 | Tennis

Roger has reached the next round in New York, dropping his first set of the tournament against America’s John Isner. Roger shred the local's Grand Slam dream 6-7 (4-7), 6-2, 6-4, 6-2.

 

Our star took a set to work out the rocket-like serve of the super-sized former university student, who was playing in only his second ATP-level event.

"He's one of the best servers, it's hard to play guys like him," said Roger, who had zero unforced errors in the second and third sets. "I picked up his serve form the second set. But he's been playing fantastic the last few weeks."

 

Roger lost the opening set in a tiebreaker, then got down to business in dismantling the raw, unpolished game of Isner, who stands nearly 2.05 meters. The number one used his precision to glide past his third successive opponent ranked outside the top 100 this week. He committed just two unforced errors in more than two hours on court.

 

Roger won his 23rd match at the Open, where he was last beaten in 2003. Our top seed dominated after the first set, with errors piling up as fast as aces for the youngster. He will next face Feliciano Lopez from Spain.

Dear Roger,

Congratulations on your win against the big serving Isner. It was truly amazing that you had zero unforced errors in the 2nd and 3rd sets. Once you started to work out Isner's serve it was business as usual for you! Your full repertoire

Roger,

Great match against John Isner, although it caused a number of heart palpatations in the first set. Second, third and fourth were a snap!

Good luck against Lopez. I'll be cheering you on....
