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.

Whatever the reason, actually there cannot be a reason to this loss, apart frm Roger lost deliberately - so frustrating....so depressing.....
Cincinnati is faster than Flushing Meadows....hope Roger does well and wins.

I do not understand what happened, and I believe you either. But I think in the end you left a little of the game, came after he was late. this sport is more difficult. Who are we to question you? .
You do own analysis.
Now, think about the next tou

Spirit-of-a-Champion p.21,

I wasn't aiming at you, but at other, less articulate fans. I just read the postmatch interview, which was as so often very informative. It was not only the lack of focus, but of course also the serve, that let Roger down. An

I fully agree with Dutchlady. Not only last year when he last Toronto and Cincinnati this year he lost in Monte Carlo, Rome early and won RG.

So boting get a live and have respect for Roger.
He's a great champion and human win or loss
