A clear victory in round two

31.05.2006 | Tennis

On a third consecutive damp, chilly day at the French Open, Roger endured two rain delays while beating Alejandro Falla 6-1, 6-4, 6-3 in the second round today.

 

The two delays totaled 1 hour, 31 minutes, while the match lasted only 1 hour, 26 minutes.

 

"I'm happy to get through," Roger said. "It's not easy to come on and off. You always hope your game is still there and it hasn't left you."

 

Roger shanked forehands on two match points in the final game before closing out the victory to improve to 40-3 this year. He never lost his serve, won 55 of 68 service points and finished with 41 winners to 13 for Falla.

 

A Colombian ranked 139th, Falla lost in qualifying and made the draw only because another player pulled out. He now has the distinction of losing to Roger at two major events - their only previous meeting came in the second round at Wimbledon in 2004.
