Roger shows great tennis

13.05.2010 | Tennis

Roger defeated Stanislas Wawrinka in Madrid today, racing past the fellow Swiss 6-3 and 6-1.

Roger turned in an impressive performance in just one hour and nine minutes to earn his place in the quarterfinals. Today's start was everything but promising, though, as he gave away the opening game of the match as Wawrinka realised the first break. From there, however, our world No. 1 enjoyed a swift turnaround as he took the break right back and finally went on to take a one-set advantage. With momentum in hand, Roger converted an immediate break in set two with a blistering forehand return and even managed to extend his lead to 4-0, leaving plenty of room to breathe. Our champ finished with a clean 23 winners and 11 unforced errors while firing six aces against one double-fault.

Roger can now aim for revenge for his loss in the second round in Rome as he plays Ernests Gulbis next. So let's hope he can keep his game just the way it was today!

Yes the semis will already be very tough. Glad Roger is through the quarters at least. He started playing like himself the last half of the match. Gulbis got exhausted - he looked like hell at the end. Roger looked completely cool. How does he do it?

Reminder of Australia final, so clever!!!!
Soooooooooo happy to watch you play this way!

Phew... Horrible start, but you played better as the set progressed. Gulbis probably thought he had you.


It's silly, I know, but I turned off the livestreaming as you seemed to be doing better when I wasn't watching. LOL!!
