New record for Cincy

18.08.2005 | Tennis

Roger hasn't showed his best tennis this week, but has produced when it was needed. Roger failed to hold serve four times but beat Nicolas Kiefer of Germany 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 Wednesday in the second round of the Cincinnati Masters. "There's a reason he's No. 1 — he makes the important points," Kiefer said. Roger failed to hold serve twice in the first set, righted himself a bit in the second, then failed to hold twice in the third. "I was struggling in the beginning," he said. "The start of the match was crucial, and I couldn't get on top of him there. Still, in the end, to turn it around and not play my best is always a good feeling." Roger is 6-3 against Kiefer and has won five straight, including three times this year. It took him four sets at Wimbledon. He said the long break has drained a bit of his confidence. "The way you read the game; I have the feeling that's missing most," he said. "Then doubt suddenly creeps to your mind. You're not sure, 'Should I go for the shot or should I rather play it safe one more time?' When you're playing well, when you're confident, you don't think about those kind of things."

Hi, Roger! I have not seen the match but I read sports news. That’s a bit of stress, but when everything is too easy, it is not interesting, for you either I guess?

What counts is that you've won, and that you're still number 1...

Well... Maria Sharapova hasn't played, and her is also the number 1...

Oh, you two have so much in common... You're handsome... talented... charismatic... Are you SURE that you two..

I watched the whole match, I must say that even though you are not at your best but you still try to pull yourself up and find the way to win it. I really hope you will regain your forms after the two tough matches.

However, Congratulations on the vict
