Next victory over Karlovic

31.10.2007 | Tennis

Roger was once again able to defeat Croat Ivo Karlovic, although he needed a third set this time: 6-3, 4-6, 6-3. He will now meet David Nalbandian in the next round of the Paris Masters.


"It was not easy but I had a lot more opportunities than in Basel and I played well at times," Roger said after the match.


Roger broke in the sixth game of the first set and went on to take it with a forehand winner after 35 minutes. Karlovic fought back in the second set, earning three set points in its 1Oth game. Roger saved two but hit a forehand long on the third. An early break in the decisive set helped our star regain control and he stayed on top until Karlovic, who fired 16 aces to bring his 2007 total to an amazing 1,318, bowed out by missing a drop shot on the first match point.

Dear Roger!
Sorry you didn't win today, but I think it's OK. It was a great effort you've made to come play in Paris your third tournament in a row . I'm sure the fans really apriciate this. Today you played 12-th match in the last 2 and a half weeks, so

Roger your shots selection today againsts Nalbandian is bad. You definately need a coach now. David Nalbandian is beating you regularly now. Not only him but other players like Canas and other clay court speacialists are beating you in indoors and hard co

Very unfortunate for the loss Roger! However, you shouldn't beat yourself up too much, I think it's a good thing you actually lost early to Nalbandian because you will now have more time to prepare for the Shanghai Masters. You've been playing 3 straigh

Hello Fed,

Are you tanking this match to get ready for Shanghai? Why? This guy Nalbandian thinks he's got his numbers on yours too! PLEEASE!

I am watching the Nalbandian match live and recently notices that your game is just a fraction off. But he has a new coach which has obviously helped him. It must be hard to do this alone. Maybe you should consider some coaching help just to get the fr
