Roger reaches last eight in Rome

30.04.2009 | Tennis

It took Roger just 68 minutes to secure a comfortable victory over Radek Stepanek today in Rome.


Roger started extremely well, taking a 4-1 lead in the first set. But Stepanek raised his level of play and came up to 4-5, before Roger scored yet another break an took home the set. Roger served and returned brilliantly and managed to march off with a 5-0 lead in the second set. The Czech just managed to avoid a bagle before our champ finished off the match with two aces, taking an impressive four out of seven break-point opportunities.


Roger will play his quarter final against France's Gilles Simon (ATP 7) or Germany's Mischa Zverev (ATP 76) on Friday.

the only problem with Roger today is net points.

His serve is fine.

He back hand is really great.
