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.

Dear Roger:
During this week end I have seen all the tennis I could see. But, ... After your match against Hewitt was over, there was nothing there.
There is nobody like you, with your grace and elegance, with your amazing shots.
Good luck today !!!

I live in the forest with very little electricity and no television so can't watch the matches. But i check the scores on my mobile phone and am rooting for you! Let's see a 16th Roger!
