A successful start

23.10.2007 | Tennis

Roger shifted his impeccable tennis back on course, but had to survive a scare from Germany’s Michael Berrer (ATP 56) to reach the second round of the Swiss Indoors in Basel today: 6-1, 3-6, 6-3.

 

Against Berrer, Roger ran out a pair of love games to start and concluded the rapid-fire opening set in 21 minutes with a clean forehand into the corner. But that was where the tide turned, with Berrer finding a surprise 4-0 lead in the second set with our star able to break back only once, in the fifth game. Roger dropped the set but then stepped up a gear in the third, securing the 4-2 break and finally the set.

 

"I'm through to the second round and I have a day off on Wednesday," said Roger after his victory against Berrer, hulking 100kg and 1.90 metres, wondering what all the fuss was about. "It couldn't be better."

He will next meet Argentina’s Juan Martin del Potro or the American Michael Russell.

Dear Roger,

Congratulations on your win against Berrer. Good luck in the next round against Del Potro.

Also, congratulations on being voted 4th Manliest Man for 2007 although of course you should have been in the No.1 spot. Take care.
