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.

Well, I thought it was a pretty good start to the tournament.. you played some stunning shots, & were attacking the ball right from the start.. It was a joy to see you hitting so freely and using the width of the court very well.. Now Llodra.. a leftie..

It was so good to see you play your beautiful tennis at long last...a little hiccup in the first set but you caught on and blazed away the rest of the match.
Now that the rust has been dusted off...you can shine again !!!Your brilliance w
