Roger eases into quarters

07.01.2009 | Tennis

Roger booked his place in the quarters with a 6-3, 6-3 victory over Italian Andreas Seppi. Our star was not always at his best and was broken once but still came through unscathed in 1 hour 19 minutes.


"I hit five times as many balls in this match as in the last one, which is good for me at this stage", Roger said. "I'm satisfied with my level at the moment. To a degree I know where my game is but as the tournament progresses you get tougher opponents and you tend to play as well as your opponent."


Roger will next meet eighth-seeded German Philipp Kohlschreiber, who beat Belgian Kristof Vliegen. Roger has won the two matches against world no. 28 Kohlschreiber.

Thanks so much for your descriptions. I hope I get to see the slice passing shot. We can sometimes get a nice Sky News wrap-up on the soccer channel we have (though they never broadcast the matches) and they show great hig

Kohlschreiber made a valiant effort in the second set, but you showed grit and determination to pull it off.

So happy Nada (TBP) was beaten. Monfils is beginning to come into his own. Hmmmmm...

So happy for Andy Roddick, if and u
