Roger enters next round with ease

04.11.2009 | Tennis

Roger defeated Italy's Andreas Seppi 6-3, 6-3 at the Davidoff Swiss Indoors in Basel today.


"It was a bit tougher than my first match, but I was able to raise my game at a few crucial moments and that was the difference," Roger said after today's victory. "I recuperated and worked a bit to get in shape and can play maybe this season in good health, which wasn't the case last year - especially for the Masters."

He did not have his serve broken today, saving the only two break points Seppi had. Our champ trailed 3-2 in the second set before reeling off the final four games.


Next up, in the quarter final, is the winner of the match between Jeremy Chardy and Evgeny Korolev. Due to the change of the tournament schedule in Basel this is the first year that Roger gets to rest on Thursday. He might attend his favourite's soccer club - FC Basel, just across the road from the tennis venue - Europe League match against CSKA Sofia on the evening of his day off.

Congratulations on your victory and Good Luck on Friday. Did you have a chance to see FC Basel - by the way, I loved your singing for Team Swisse - I play it over and over (see you on the moon - that was unique) - talent plus humble.
