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.

Keep up the pressure - HOLD YOUR SERVE 3 more times, or another break would be lovely. :)

Ok - again, Roger is off to a good start, leads 3-0 in the 3rd set. I guess he knows that somehow e has to pull this match off, but why does he have to stretch it to 3rd set when he knew he could have comfortably won in 2 sets, perhaps he loves to play An
