First week without dropping a set

04.09.2010 | Tennis

Roger has come through the first week of the US Open without dropping a set. He defeated France's Paul-Henri Mathieu (ATP 109) 6-4, 6-3, 6-3 today to book his spot in round four.

 

Roger had 13 aces and no double-faults. He had to fight off four break points on his serve, while he scored four breaks on his opponent's. Mathieu did his part in helping our champ as he dropped his serve with a final double-fault on two occasions. Roger is now at 5-0 against the Frenchman who had upset Lleyton Hewitt in the first round.

Conditions in the Arthur-Ashe stadium were extremely difficult today with gusting winds troubling both players when tossing the ball on service as well as controlling the ball during play. Roger and Mathieu had to capitulate several times as they misjudged trajectories. Mathieu's only chance came when he forced a break point in the eighth game but Roger saved it and won three games in a row to win the first set. Roger broke twice to win the second set and in the sixth game of the third, wrapping up the match in under 100 minutes.

 

Roger's next match is scheduled for Monday against Jürgen Melzer (ATP 15) or Juan Carlos Ferrero (ATP 24).
