Roger cruises into round three

24.06.2009 | Tennis

Roger produced a sublime display to beat Guillermo Garcia-Lopez in the second round at Wimbledon today. It took him just 89 minutes to secure the 6-2, 6-2, 6-4 victory.


"The opponents are only going to get tougher. I'm playing great at the moment, and I hope it is going to last," he said. Roger server brilliantly, losing only three points on his first serve and breaking his opponent regularly. He was in superb touch as he broke twice to take the first set 6-2 and, after saving two break points early in the second, a stunning winner saw him break as he won the set 6-2. He then eased through the third set 6-4.


After a break on Thursday, Roger will face Philipp Kohlschreiber in round three on Friday. He has won all three encounters with the German so far.

That was quite a match Roger and you played extremely well. A couple of scary spots like when you slipped but it was vintage Federer out there winning today. Even if the match was longer than you had hoped just look at it as great practice. You are wonder

Fans you should watch the Tsonga match now if you have a chance, it is really good and apparently the winner will play Roger next? They are so so so close!

ALSO Congratulations Roger!! GOOD JOB!

Winning the 4th set 6-1 after having just lost the previous shows mental toughness!

You have everything it takes to win this Wimbledon, Roger! We know it, as I'm sure you know it, too.

The best of luck against Soderling!
