Roger to meet Söderling

26.06.2009 | Tennis

Roger ovecame a spirited challenge from Philipp Kohlschreiber today to advance into the fourth round in Wimbledon.  


The 6-3, 6-2, 6-7(5), 6-1 victory brings Roger a clash with Robin Söderling on Friday, the man he beat to win the French Open just a few weeks ago. Roger said: "I felt more pressure two years ago when I was trying to win a fifth Wimbledon title, but I'm relaxed and feeling good about being in the second week."


Kohlschreiber had lost all his three previous meetings with our champ and had never been able to win a set so far. But the German showed his determination and took advantage of the chance given in the third set, coming from a break back and eventually winning the tie-break. But Roger regained his rhythm right away, showing more brilliant tennis before he sealed his victory after 2 hours 31 minutes with a forehand winner.


On Monday afternoon, Roger will play Robin Söderling, against whom he has won his 10 previous matches.

Who is this Sela guy playing Djokovic - never even heard of him - should be an easy match for him. Next Roger has to play either the giant Karlovic or the other lefty Verdasco. More tough matches to come.

Star TV really sucks! They have not broadcasted a full whole match of Roger so far. Always give us some crap matches to watch. Now they are showing a men's double match with some Indian players. No one's interested in the doubles especially at this stage

BRAVO, BRAVO der Roger!

C O N G R A T U L A T I O N S!

Well done. Great match today! Soderling played really well, but you ...... you were unbelievable! I'm so happy.
You are in QF now! Good luck!

My best wishes to you, Mirka and your family,

Roger H2H 11-0 against Soderling! Woo-hoo!!!
You played a marvellous match, Roger. Can't blame Soderling to lose 11 times to you. You're just too good for him. Robin is a very good player with such huge serves, no wonder he could beat Nadal. Keep going,

Straight sets! and such good serving, on both parts. Incredible number of aces. So pleased for you. K

Congrats Roger, on courageous, precision tennis and monstrous serving. What a match!
