A successful start in Shanghai

13.10.2010 | Tennis

Fresh from his four-week break from the ATP Tour, Roger booked his place in the round of the last 16 at the Shanghai Rolex Masters today. He defeated John Isner (USA, ATP 20) 6-3, 6-4 in a dazzling, crowd-pleasing performance.


Roger secured an early break in either set to see off the American - who in turn did not have a break-point during the entire match. He came close at one point, but Roger countered the linesman's decision with a successful "Challenge".


Next up for our champ is Andreas Seppi of Italy (ATP 58) who had to complete two matches on Wednesday(!). Roger has never dropped a set against Seppi in their six encounters so far.

Dear Roger,

Congratulations on your win against Isner. It was a great performance by you and the way you dealt with his big serve was amazing. Also, another brilliant through the legs shot! I love your new outfit - the lilac top really suits you. G
