Quarters against Roddick

01.04.2009 | Tennis

Roger halted Taylor Dent’s comeback bid by defeating the American qualifier 6-3, 6-2 on Tuesday to reach the quarter-finals at the Masters in Miami.

 

Our star needed just 85 minutes to earn a place in the final eight, but had to overcome a few delicated moments, especially in the first set: serving at 2-all, Roger fought off eight break points in a remarkable sequence to take the lead for good and realized a break in the sixth game by winning the first set 6-3. In the second set Roger broke his opponent’s serve twice and finished the match.

 

In the next Roger will face fifth seeded American Andy Roddick who advanced with a win over France's Gael Monfils. Roger has won 16 of their 18 matches but lost to Roddick in the Key Biscayne quarterfinals last year:

"We've had some big matches over the years. I played him at the Australian Open and played well against him. He seems like he changed a couple of things in his game so it should be a good match."

I am so happy for you, Roger ! Although there were a lots of UE, but eventually you prevailed ! You did calm down yourself and made great shot at the crucial points. I am sure you will cut down your UE this match against Djokovic. Never lose your focus, R

Roger,

I am happy that you win the match. Therefore, you need to improve your game a lot. Playing like you play today, maybe you are going to have issues even with Djokovic. I hope not.
