A close victory to start with

30.07.2008 | Tennis

Roger had to face an opponent serving for the match at 6-5 in the second set in the second round in Cincinnati. But Roger managed to turn the tide and eventually prevail 6-7, 7-6, 6-0.

 

"I'm happy I'm back with a one-match winning streak," Roger joked. "I'm happy I could turn it around today."

 

Once our champ had survived the second set and struggled through the ensuing tie-break, the match was effectively over. You could feel the relaxation spread over his body like a masseur's oil. Nevertheless it was a worrying start and Nadal could still become No1 for the first time this week, if Roger does not make the semis.

 

But Roger has survived opening scares before and gone on to win tournaments, and no-one doubts that he has all the chances to do so again this time. Roger's problem was the heat, which causes balls to fly at speeds unfamiliar to those who have played the previous week in Toronto, where it is quite slow. And playing Americans in the US can be especially dangerous.

 

Next up is either Ivo Karlovic (CRO/16) or José Acasuso (ARG).

Rog I've read all these comments and after watching the karlovic match, have dried my tears. You played amazing tennis. I doubt anyone, even Nadal could have beaten a man whose serve was phenonomal today (hope he keeps it up against the likes of Rafa a

Hi Roger. REally sad for you today. Don't despair. Fate has a strange way of twisting and turning and maybe, with the pressure of being No1 off your shoulders you can now find your spark again again in time for the Olympics and the US Open. All your f

Dear Roger

You played so, so well. Somehow, just that little bit of luck which ALL sportspersons need is not going your way. The tide WILL change.
