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.

Over 200km/h serve in this match. What a great win. :-)

Roger's b/point conversion rate could be much better (1st & 4th sets) and his 2nd serve % in the fourth set was not up to his usual standards.

Mario Ancic will be a tough customer.

Did anybody see Mirka or José today? For the little part of the match I could see, they didn't show Fed's box at all.
