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.

I was wondering what could happen to lose that incredible match after heading up 5-1 and serving for win.

Anyway.....until now I was watching the amazing victory of our own Del Potro against Nadal, and I couldn't help but notice he's gonna take a long

It was exciting and entertaining to see you play in Montreal, I am not talking about the Tsonga match, it hurt to watch that, you know it's painful and stressful to see you lose any match, even an Exhibition match.. but now we are lo

Murray wants to be No.2 to have a good chance in the American draw in the US open in order to avoid – maybe – Federer and Rafa in his draw and before the final ..
Then he will have to battle one of them not both of them as the last y

What problem. Do you think Murray will jump in on the #2 ranking??

With Nadal's loss, Murray is likely to be #2. The seeding for the U.S. Open will be interesting...
