September 4, 2017 -- Flushing Meadows, NYC
Roger faced yet another player he has never lost to in his Round of 16 match today.
The 3rd seed defeated Philipp Kohlschreiber this evening in routine fashion without facing a break point. The 6-4, 6-2, 7-5 puts Roger with a 12-0 record over Kohlschreiber and sets up a Quarterfinal clash with Juan Martin del Potro who clawed his way back from two sets down in his match.
"To play him here again after our epic final in 2009, it’s great for both of us and I think we’re both looking forward to it. At least I am," Roger said after reflecting on their US Open match in 2009.
Roger remains undefeated in Grand Slam matches this year.
