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).

www.channelsurfing.net, second Wimbledon link.

If this doesn't work, try Radio Wimbledon on the official website. Its pretty good when you're depending on nothing but live scores.

Sheloe, warming up, comeon Federer was broken in his first game. Let's see if he can break back

Federer broken in his first game oh my God!, no panicking yet but this is only the 2nd time that he has broken so far. Roger better step it up here pls. What do u guys think?

The one thing I don't like about the Wimbledon web site livestream is they only show the "match"-- none of the pre or post-show.

Are they warming up yet?

Sheleo, oh I 'd like to see Gasquet beat Murray, it will be devastating to Murray in front of his home crowd. I don't particularly like his game and attitude on court. GAsquet is a better refined player with that wonderful back hand. Federer to serve, her

Correction: to his "feet!"

Go, Rogie!!!
