Roger reaches next round

14.03.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger has made it through to round three in Indian Wells thanks to a  7-5, 7-6(4) victory over Russia's Igor Andreev in 94 minutes.

"I played really well," said Roger after the match. "In the first round, you never have too much expectation and you just hope to get through."

It was Roger's fourth victory over Andreev in four meetings. But it was the first time our champ didn't have to drop a set against the hard-hitting Russian. In the tiebreak, Roger set up his match point by forcing Andreev to hit a backhand long and then clinched the win when Andreev pounded a forehand into the net.

Roger will face Argentina's Juan Ignacio Chela (ATP 32) in the next round of Indian Wells on Tuesday.
