A fantastic finish

04.09.2007 | Tennis


Roger overcame a spirited opponent in Feliciano Lopez to advance to the quarter-finals of the US Open in last evening’s night-session. He lost the first set, barely won the second, and trailed love-40 to start the third. But then Roger did the sort of remarkable thing that only our hero does: He won the next 35 points he served.


Answering every question Lopez posed with an exclamation point, Roger took control of the third set and the match, coming back to win 3-6, 6-4, 6-1, 6-4 in the fourth round at Flushing Meadows.



"He is a fantastic player I just hung in there and hoped he didn't keep playing so well," said Roger of Lopez after the match. With this victory, he has set up a tantalising quarter-final clash with former champ Andy Roddick. He is 13-1 against Roddick, but Roger’s comment was: "it's a great record, but it doesn't help me. We’ll see how it goes. Andy's always tough at the U.S. Open."

Hi Rog,
Your game with Andy tonight was a big piece of chocolate cake, and a big steak too!
You made some great shots, like the one over his head that landed behind him, and all the aces, especially the one at the end of the first tie break.

hey rog!

about ur game with lopez, the 1st set wasn't pretty but i kind of liked it that u don't dominate too much [although it would have been easier for u] because u just take it up another level at times of crisis. the next 3 sets that followed were
