A solid victory in the doubles

13.08.2008 | Tennis

Roger only had a few hours break after his victory in the singles competition before getting back on court for the doubles. Playing a most solid match, Roger and Stan qualified for the quarterfinal of the doubles competition with a 6-4, 6-3  victory over Dmitry Tursunov and Mikhail Youzhny.  

 

The Swiss duo played a very good match and was able to improve the level of play throughout the game. They will take on Mahesh Bhupathi/Leander Paes of India in the next round – a rather difficult task. Roger had lost to them at the Athens Olympics four years ago together with Yves Allegro.

With no :

3- Very high service percentage (85 and above)

4- Very low unforced

Couldn't agree with you more on the equipment comment. Secondly, with this kind of terrible downhill slide, the mental injury is pretty substantial. Roger will definitely need someone to bounce things off to regain his "balance". Con
