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.

*** sheleo, (your msg in last thread)

I was only teasing you! Really, seriously, absolutely.
Croix de fer, croix de bois, si je mens, je vais en enfer. Tu me crois?

Smile or laugh, but don't cry.

What a silly way to say I missed you, no?

You played awesomely against Tsonga and Del Potro, Roger. It all looked easy.

Congratulations and good luck on your way to another Madrid title!

Have fun!

Tsonga hit first but Roger's hit was lethal.

Good job, Roger!
