Roger rushes into round 2

28.05.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger started his 50th straight major by defeating Germany's Tomas Kamke (ATP 78) 6-2, 7-5, 6-3 at the French Open today - equalling Jimmy Connors' record of 233 Grand Slam match victories!

"I get a great deal of pleasure playing here. When I play well, the numbers come with me. It's great to have played and won here so often. I hope it continues," Roger said.

Roger scored three out of four break points in the opening set and continued well, securing the important points. He was always in charge, but nevertheless accumuluated over 40 unforced errors and missed several rather certain opportunities. He never got into danger, though, and wrapped up the match after 117 minutes on a sixth match point.

Roger will next face Adrian Ungur (ATP 92) of Romania who eliminated David Nalbandian in four sets.

Dear Rog, I watched the Tennis Channel video of the interview after you won yesterday. You always look so polished and elegant. I like what you said about timing your practice when the kids nap so you can be with them in the morning and in the afternoon when they wake up. You are great at time management not only in your career but also in your family life, and you credited Mirka. We love you for being you. Good luck in the next match.

Good start, I am sure you must have found a solution by now for the failure of first serve,it is very important in all surfaces, take enough time between the serve.
You will win this tournament
Wish you all the best

Hey! Roger,
There is no doubt you have great fashion sense. However, to be more comfortable while playing in the heat, I think you should opt for white t-shirt, white short, white socks(length just above ankle), white shoes and white bandana with Swiss flag symbol. I think the short length socks would give you more free movement in your play.
Best of luck for tomorrow's match.

You really did a great job Roger. Continue playing that well. Try to minimize the unforced errors that you commit. Goodluck and God Bless Roger. You can do it through the finals and get the title of being Roland Garros Winner 2012
