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.

Roger, you played fantastic! I kept picturing a rabbit scurrying in the back court, how quick you returned to Karlovic, you finally broke the Croat instead of going into tiebreaks and I think the more you play him, you will be able to break him more in t

For my opinion, the match against Nalbandian, Win or Loose for Roger is not important for this tournament.
The key thing is to conserve/save up the ENERGY for the tournament of Shanghai. It's better to take a break to be more efficient, in relation to th
