A solid start

26.05.2008 | Tennis

Roger started his French Open campaign convincingly today with a 6-4, 6-4, 6-3 victory over American Sam Querrey.

 

"It's always difficult in the first round at Grand Slams," Roger said. "I'm relieved and I'm looking forward to the second round."

 

Roger will now face Albert Montanes of Spain or Belgium's Kristof Vliegen for a place in the third round as he seeks to complete a career Grand Slam. He was rarely troubled in his opening match, facing a break in the first set but recording two breaks of his own against the Querrey delivery to move a set up.

 

He then showed solid tennis with some occasional brilliant shots and was able to wrap up the victory in just over an hour and a half.

Match seemed very tight, this rain delay may be an advantage for Roger, why Roger was struggling? I'm so nervous.

I just hope these Rain-breaks don't have the same effect on Roger as the Medical-Timeouts do have.

i am still curious was montanes playing so well?

It was pretty scary that Montanes had set point... But Roger pulled a couple of aces and saved himself. 5-5 is not bad, much better than 4-6! I think that Roger should get better as the match continues on after the rain.

live scores says play suspended...the match is real tight at the moment, hope roger can break in the next game, that way he will be more relaxed.
