Roger rallies to win

05.09.2009 | Tennis

Roger battled past Lleyton Hewitt with a 4-6, 6-3, 7-5, 6-4 victory today.

 

“We played here in the finals in 2004,” Roger said in a court-side interview. “The third round, it just doesn’t seem right.”

 

Roger had a good start, taking a 4-2 and 40-love lead in the first set, but then suffered a bout of wayward groundstokes which eventually lead to the loss of the first set. But Roger found his rhythm rapidly and eventually raced through the second set. Hewitt did have four break points in the third set, but couldn't convert any. And our champ then went on to make everything clear in the fourth.

 

Roger's next match will be against the winner of the match between American James Blake and Tommy Robredo of Spain, who play later today.

Roger should break him now. I feel like if it's going to be a tie, Robredo has a chance

Roger just can't seem to take his break chances and demoralize Robredo. Comeon Roger you can do it pls.

too bad - no break yet for Roger. Keep going - you can do it! I thought he would get a break last game but not yet.

At the early going,this looks to be a pretty competetive match.Robredo is playing really aggressively and so is Federer.They are on serve at the moment 3-2 Robredo.

Getting ready for Roger's match against Robredo. Roger has to bring his A game today, either way, he needs a win here to move to the qtrs and play against Soderling. My heart is pounding a bit after watching Oudin turn her magic around and baet Petrova a
