Roger struggles into third round

23.04.2008 | Tennis

Roger was two points from an exit from the Monte Carlo Masters on Wednesday before rallying to beat Spanish qualifier Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo 6-1, 3-6, 7-6 to reach the third round.


The world number one was 5-4 and 30-15 down in the third set before his opponent, ranked 137th by the ATP, crumbled under the pressure.


He eventually won the tiebreak 7-1, wrapping it up after two hours and three minutes on his first match point when Ramirez Hidalgo sent a forehand wide.


"I felt a bit slow out there. He played so badly in the first set that he almost faked me out," Roger told reporters. "But when he served for the match it became tough on him."


"I'm disappointed by the way I played but tomorrow is a new match, a new day, a new opponent. And so far, it's six matches and six wins on clay so I'm happy."

hey pokah22, yeh i agree that after being broken in 3rd game, roger has tightened up his game, hes taken 1st set which is good news 6-3, and now he has broken monfils in 3rd game of set 2, lol, if roger keeps going at this rate, match should be over soon,

Ok guys, Roger started struggling a little against Monfils and was broken in the third game, but he broke back and never looked back. he has ust won the first set, so I hope and keeping my fingers crossed that the second set goes really fast. He should us
