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."

Dear Roger,

Just wanted to wish you good luck for tonight’s match. Be ruthless and don’t allow him any chances. After all… you’re the maestro (+ looking exquisite in that black attire). Really looking forward to another dazzling display from you.

Congratulations Roger! I was a little worried at the beginning of your match with both Isner and Lopez but as always, you overcome. As soon as you figured out their serves, the match was yours. You played wonderfully and I can't wait to watch you play
