Yet to drop a set

29.05.2015 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger has made it through to the round of sixteen at the French Open without dropping a set. He showed an excellent display today, defeating Damir Dzumhur 6-4, 6-3, 6-2.

 

"I had never played him before. He moves well, he’s very quick," Roger said. "I didn’t know him, and I didn’t know how he’d play on the key points. Mentally, I’m not always as relaxed as people might think. There is so much at stake."

Roger faced a focused opponent who tried various approaches in the challenge. But Roger was simply in too good a shape today. He did drop his serve once in the second set, but immediately responded with a re-break with a fantastic cross-court backhand. He did not leave any doubts in the third set, scoring an early break and converting his first match-ball after 88 minutes.


He will now either meet Gaël Monfils (ATP 14) or Pablo Cuevas (ATP 23).

no! crowd will be with French guy! this is France! But Roger knows how to handle it...I was really shocked that Pablo lost this match. 4:1 in 4th set with 2 breaks and then losing 4:6???? French crowd got into his head for sure. Pity. I like him very very much...and matches vs Roger were pure BACKHAND PARADISE so far

Ended up going out and not watching the Monfils match after all, Roger will not be distracted by Gaels theatrics! Yes Gael has beaten him the last two meetings but this match is best of 5 sets and we all know what happened at last years USO! The crowd may side with Gael but as long as Roger stays focussed he can win just like he has all 8 other times! Allez Roger!

I dread the crowd, not Roger's talent. But Roger can stay focused and centered, and once in a while scream into his towel - Allez Roger! :-)

Playing Monfils is playing against the stadium. They can be very boisterous and even rude. And Monfils takes advantage of that. I was there last year when he played Murray. It was terrible. Roger has to ignore them and just focus on his own game.
