Another Strong Performance

Roger defeated Evgeny Korolev (ATP 53) 6-2, 6-4 today to march on into the quarter-finals at the ATP tournament in Doha.

"I know how he plays so I had the match under control," Roger said. "He plays a lot of balls on the forehand, so I was able to stay ahead in the match. There were long rallies in the second set, but I am pleased to have reached the quarter-finals."

Once again, Roger raced into the match, taking a 3-0 lead in the first set. He broke serve a total of three times in the first set and once in the second and was always in control of the match.

Roger will play the quarter finals on Thursday where he will either meet Andreas Seppi (ITA) or Ernests Gulbis (LAT).
