Through in straight sets

17.10.2008 | Tennis

Roger'sbid to win the Madrid Masters remains on course as he downed 16th seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France in straight sets to clinch a quarter-final spot.


It was the the first time Roger and Tsonga faced each other. "It's hard to face a player you've never met before, that's why I worked a little bit harder at the beginning," our champ said. "It was like playing a box fight, he always hit first."


Roger proved too good for his younger opponent, beating the Australian Open finalist 6-4 6-1 in just over an hour. Now, he will clash against Juan Martin del Potro; they met twice, and our 13-time Grand Slam champion won both without dropping a set.

Welcome on the couch!!
Why the edge is because I have a great respect for Murray's intelligent game. The UFO final was not at all the real Murray. He got really nervous. A Master Serie 1/2 is another story.
The big plus is that Rogie is just m

Congratulation Roger on your 3rd win in Madrid. It seems that taking a good rest after the US open was a wise choice! And today especially you showed how a good tactician you are to out play Del potro geniusly.
