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."

Yay! My Hero! I will be cheering for you tonight! You know Andy wants revenge for what you did to him at the Australian, but I know you can pull it off. Boy, how I'd love to see you give him another one of your baseline flickas, like you did in that semif

It's about 2:00 p.m New York time. A few hours to go for Roger to meet A-Rod. For sure, Andy will play with anger to revenge the 12 consecutive losses to you. But Roger can turn his anger against him. Andy is overcoached. If you change the game a litttle

Roger I just cannot wait to see you devastate Andy Roddick once more. It is true Andy is gunning for you and will try all the tricks he knows but fortunately for you you are aware of all his tricks and can handle anything he throws out. I know you really
