Roger wins first match

11.08.2010 | Tennis

Roger made a good start in Toronto to beat Juan Ignacio Chela 7-6 (7), 6-3 to reach the third round of the Rogers Cup.


"I'm glad to go through," Roger said. "I was a bit rusty in the opening match and he really made me play. But I'm very happy with how it went tonight."


Roger opened the match in brilliant fashion, approaching the net more than he has done recently, and went to take a 5-2 lead. But he battled with his serve after that and was unable to make use of two set-points at 5-4, taking the match into a tie-breaker. That proved to be a tough one, but our champ made it through and took home the first set - taking him seven set points and 48 minutes all in all. Roger showed solid tennis in the second set, booking his spot in the round of the last eight after 81 minutes of play.


Next up is either Nicolas Almagro (ATP 16) or Michael Llodra (ATP 35) on Thursday.

Hello Roger,

Wonderful to see you on the courts again and CONGRATS for winning your first match in Toronto.

It is expected that you will be a bit rusty after a long break in play. Match play will allow you to find your rhythm and hopefully take you
