October 26, 2017 -- Basel, Switzerland
Roger cruised into the Quarterfinals in his hometown tournament today against Benoit Paire. Needing less than an hour, he served and returned in solid fashion and never faced a break point to take the match 6-1, 6-3.
"It feels nice. I've played good tennis from the start of this tournament. There's always extra pressure playing at home and wanting to do well and try to stay in the tournament," he said. "I'm happy to be through to the quarters and we'll see what happens now."
Up next for Roger will be 28th ranked, Adrian Mannarino.
