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.

Delpotro won, he's off to the semifinals
Nadal is out. Somehow, I don't think his fans will start harrassing him for this loss..

Playing on the ATP tour is like running marathon. If you choose to front run others in the first 10 miles, using up all your energy, you will certainly not emerge as a final winner. You have to manage your energy well, know yourself and know your opponent

Champion forward, nothing has been lost.
With you always, in good and bad.
