Roger breezes through opener

22.06.2009 | Tennis

Roger began his campaign to regain his Wimbledon crown with a solid victory in the opening match today, defeating Lu Yen-hsun of Chinese Taipei 7-5, 6-3, 6-2.

 

Our champ once again entered the court in a stylish outfit. This year, he went for a military-style jacket, which he stripped off to reveal a silk waistcoat worn over his more conventional tennis clothes.

 

Roger said: "It might look easy, but it is not. The first round is a lot different to say rounds two, three and four. You want to get off to a good start, get it out of the way and find your way into a tournament. Once you're in it, things seem a lot easier because your mind is in the tournament. But it is not easy, and Lu showed that today. It was a tough first set, and he remained tough throughout the game and that was good for me."

 

His first serve percentage was good, he kept unforced errors almost to a bare minimum when compared with his winners. All in all, Roger gave an allround performance today, which could in fact be taken as just a practice match for the next few days to come and which should get even better in the next set of matches to follow.

 

Roger will meet Guillermo Garcia-Lopez (ATP 50) in the next round.
