Roger wins Swiss meeting

14.08.2009 | Tennis

Roger claimed a third- round win over fellow Swiss and Davis Cup partner Stanislas Wawrinka at the Montreal Masters. The 6-3, 7-6 (5) victory was his 21st consecutive match win.  


"It was a tense match, you can never tell until it's over," Roger said. "Stan was serving really well. We played at a high level."


It is only a few months ago (in Monte Carlo in April) that Stan, who won the doubles gold medal at the Beijing Olympic alongside Roger, had beaten our champ. He saved four match points in the tiebreaker this time but then missed a low volley at the net to exit after one and three-quarters hours of play.


With his win Roger led the field into a totally new situation: it is the first time since the rankings began in 1973 that the top eight players in the world have all reached the quarters at the same ATP event!


Roger next meets Jo-Wilfried Tsonga from France.

Roger, I'm so sorry for your match against Tsonga... When I heard you was loosing I sayd: "Ha ha what a good joke!". Well, now good luck in Cincinnati, U.S. Open and all the competitions! :*

Both Nadal and Roger have 15 Master Series titles so far. But Nadal hasn't won any Master Cup yet, and Roger has 4. I agree with your analysis about Roger's strategy.

It is best to do less so you have more energy later . This is funny I am simply glad that you finish early and rest for the big ones that counts.

This was a planned loss by the RF camp. Roger doesn't want to face Murray before the US Open, he wants more time with his family, he doesn't want the pressure to defend every single title in 2010 and he was out in the 1st round last year so he has managed
