Roger joins last eight

14.05.2009 | Tennis

Roger was close to his best form today, easing into the quarterfinals of the Madrid Masters with a 6-2, 6-4 victory over James Blake.


He broke the American's serve with a crashing backhand return to start off with and soon after managed another break at 4-2. He went on to take the set and opened the second with yet another break. Roger showed a solid performance, wrapping up victory with a fifth ace on his first match point. Our champ had been knocked out by James Blake at the Olympic Games in Beijing last year; their head-to-head now stands at 9-1.


Roger will play the winner of the match later today between sixth seed Andy Roddick and Nikolay Davydenko.

It's not 43 unforced errors, it's 36, and Roddick had 35. What do you guys expect from Roger? 15 aces for Roger, Roddick only 7. 43 winners for Roger, Roddick only 24.

Congratulations Roger, i was a bit worried when Roddick got back in the 2nd set, but you showed true class in the 3rd , well played champ!

It weren't 43 unforced errors, but 43 winners and 36 unforced errors, boting. I could only see the third set, but it seemed to me that roger played great. Keep up the good work!

He will beat Del Potro in the semis. Murray will lose to Potro!

****Hello booting,

Why are you so negative? Same thing ***eeee said that Roger will never win USO 2008 and he won it.

Nobody is perfect, so please give him a break. When Murray beat Nadal in USO Semis, do you know how many unforced errors he had?

Congratulations Rodgeur ! Your opponents can be afraid, the "boss" is back to his best level. As Nadal is the favourite, the pression is not on your shoulders, you can play with less tension.
Go Rodgeur, you can win that tourament and then the French !

Roger, verte sonreir en la cancha es agradable, porque siento que esa alegría te dá seguridad y confianza para ganar un partido como sucedió hoy ante Roddick. Felicitaciones.

I support you. Boting should shut up. What are you up to, Boting? You never stop criticising Roger no matter he wins or loses. Don't you have anything better to say?
