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.

Roger - it was so nice to see you playing again and I really missed the excitement. You are one of a kind of your perfect shot and I like that you are coming to the net more.

Loved your outfit -- however you look good in whatever you wear.

Good Luc
