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.

Yo fellow fans!

Roger's increased the tempo and he looks awesome! 4-0 up in the 3rd, he has increased the pace of his shot and is dictating play!

Come on Roger!!!!

Roger has taken so much power and pressure on the court that it's like a big smaaaaaash! like the shot he hit when the ball fell down like a candle in the 2nd set. Come on Roger!

The Australian commentator on TSN says that Montanes may have done the worse thing by winning the first set. He upset Federer and now Federer is on fire!

Great commentator! He may be the one Margaret talked about, but I have not heard his name yet.

THAT'S the way to go, Rogelio. Keep it up, but DON'T be giving these break point opps.
