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.

I don't believe that Roger is afraid of Murray. He has beat him before and he can do it again.For Pete's sake give him a little credit.
