40th victory in Wimbledon

25.06.2008 | Tennis

Roger marched into the third round of Wimbledon today after handling Robin Soderling in straight sets 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (3).

 

"I'm happy with how I played," Roger said. "It was difficult to see the ball with the low afternoon sun. I'm moving well and even though I was broken for the first time on grass in 2008, I had an excellent performance. I hope to build on it."

 

Our champ pounded out 15 aces against the overmatched Söderling and committed no single double-fault, showing a complete control over his serve and tallying just 16 unforced errors. The same couldn’t be said for Söderling whose 30 unforced errors crippled any opportunity he may have had coming in. Roger dropped his first serve of the season on grass though, but saved the final set in great manner.

 

Roger’s next match on Friday will be either against France’s Marc Gicquel (ATP 53) or Serbia’s Ilja Bozoljac (ATP 197).

"Roger Federer is showing how he can serve, make a shots in all surfaces", a commentator just said against power shots that tennis acadamies are teaching now during the match between Hewitt and Bolelli.

***JEUX-SET-MATCH and Tilou***Looks like it's your woman against ours. I actually like Amelie a lot more than Serena because of Serena's arrogant behavior. Mauresmo has had a bad season, but a lovely game.

Let's see how it goes! It sounds like Tracy

Fabulous win, dear boy. Couldn't see it all because my boss had to walk in during the second set.

Seems like you'll be facing Hewitt in the next round - you know what HE's like. I'm sure you won't allow yourself to be broken in the first game. Your b/p
