Roger fights off challenge

03.09.2009 | Tennis

Roger had to fight off a few challenging moments from Simon Greul, but marched on into the next round of the US Open without dropping a set. He dispatched the German 6-3 7-5 7-5.

 

"I just had to make him play more shots, be more tough," said Roger. "I had to raise my level today to win because that's what was required to get through."

 

In his first match under the lights in 2009, Roger won the second-round match in straight sets but it was not a straightforward win as the world number 65 forced our top seed to play some top-drawer tennis earlier in the tournament than he is accustomed to. Roger will next face Lleyton Hewitt, who cruised past Argentina's Juan Ignacio Chela.

Next opponent Blake or Robredo.
Blake is in good form, but I expect your better play, and easy win.

That's the magic of Roger Federer. He can still pull for a win when he dosen't play well unlike Nadal who has to play with his 100% all the time. We love you so much Roger! You are the B-E-S-T!!!!!!!

Dear Fed,
to be honest... you scarred me today. the important thing is that YOU WON, however a place at the round of 16 it's not enough for YOU. GO ON PLAYING YOUR WAY, we are still here for you and we'll stay nomatter what.

Great, you win, but your play...
Something in the air, yesterday Murry and Nadal lost the set, today you and Djokovic.
