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.

You'll be up on Centre Court soon, Roger.

Remember, it's YOUR kingdom. take it back!

I'm happy that Dulko beat Shriekapova, especially since Gisela displays such great taste in saying that Roger is her favorite player!!

That was one heck of a shriek and grunt by Maria and finally Gisela was able to boot her out and that's one less shrink gone. Now let's wait for Roger's match the most interesting for the day. Go Roger go. Are u guys ready?
