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.

And, I did like to remind you, and I am very worry about this.

Almagro is a good player, he doesn't has errors(almost), and if you hit slow ball, you will...

Llodra is such a crazy volleyer, his serve and volley is very very good, if you can hit goo

Good, that rubbish is really useless. If you couldn't take him out, I will really hate you, man, you know? Keep going Roger, I'm your real real fan, I will keep an eye on you in every matches, but hope you will have fewer errors. If not, I would so worry.
