Sorry I didn’t make a post about the Chela match but we had a power out all day. There was not much to say anyway. Roger faced an opponent who he liked playing against and won easily 6-0, 6-2. Harrison was a completely different story though. He had beaten Raonic the day before in three sets in an impressive display. I always thought this would be a test for Roger. But in the end I was pretty impressed with Roger. To come through in straight sets was a good performance. He broke Harrison late in the first set, but he kept going down 0-40 on his serve and Harrison got the break back to force the tie break. Roger played a solid tie break and got the break half way through the second set and held on for the win. In the second set we saw some traces of JesusFed, especially in that last game.
Roger will face his compatriot Wawrinka in the quarters who upset Berdych in three sets. I prefer Wawrinka over Berdych to face Roger anyway. Djokovic had a second consecutive 6-0, 6-1 win in his match against Troicki and is still looking very impressive. I still think Roger will have a hard time against Djokovic if they meet, and it now looks like they will do so. Djokovic will play Gasquet who upset Roddick and I can’t see him losing there. In the top half Nadal didn’t look that impressive to me against Devvarman and he may struggle against Del Potro in the semis which looks like the likely scenario now. That is a potential match I’m looking forward too because we know how Del Potro have given Nadal problems in the past. The important thing is that it looks like Roger will make semis now which is what I hoped for in this event.
