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 Rog!
I was watching you and when you won the first set I was like that's my Roger, my champ. Then in the second set I was like don't be so agresive and you lost it. I was like ok, you will play better in the third, but when I saw he was leading 4-0,
