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.

Boting, yes I picked u out because u r the only negative person on this web. I sure know what football is and I enjoy it more than you do. Be positive for once and things will be great between us. U just have to be positive that's all.

Roger breaks again, and leads 4-1, good job Roger, I knew he would turn it around. Go Roger go, all he needs now is to hold serve and this match will be over. I guess Hewitt was affected by that 3rd set that Roger won and his mojo left him. Good job
