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.

TonyN, "for Borg's sake", Roger did drop a set-are you having a crystal globe?- then, quite naturally, won!!!!

Hi Roger Fans, I just woke up and decided to look at the 1979 French Open because the King of Clay Bjorn Borg was near his peak as a player that year, and he won the title four years in a row from 1978 to 1981.

In that 1979 French Open, the great icema

Great match Roger
Watched the whole match live.
You look great and when you lost the first set I knew the poor guy had a hammering coming.
You did just that. You showed the world and your critics not to mess with you.
Keep this fire burning and whip N

I am not surprised that they didn't show Roger's box. It has become a rarerity lately, but is is their loss.

But we shouldn't speculate or start thinking.... It would be worrysome for Roger if someone read him the emails. Better leave

Souji5 I saw Roger's coach in the last set as they showed him a couple of times. One of the commentators said something about Roger talking to him when the rain break came. But I did not see Mirka. I am so GLAD Roger won but I don't like that Slamtracker
