Roger storms through

01.11.2010 | Tennis, Starseite 2

Roger successfully started his bid for a record fourth title at the Swiss Indoors in his home town Basel today. He defeated Alexander Dolgopolov 6-4 5-2, as the Ukrainian had to retire.

Roger took a 4-3 lead in the opening set as he converted the first of three break points. Dolgopolov had served strong in the first set, but the danger was reduced in the second set as a wayward forehand gave Roger an early advantage after a double-fault. Roger raced even further, taking a 5-2 lead and served for the match. As Dolgopolov was sprinting up to the net, he hurt his right ankle as he stretched to reach a drop shot.

Roger is looking to regain the title in his hometown after losing in last year's final against Novak Djokovic. He has previously won the title three times.


Roger will play either Denis Istomin (ATP 43) or Janko Tipsarevic (ATP 46) on Wednesday.

Perfect game!
Stay motivated and the next year you'll do the thing no one did - for the third time regain Year End No1. For the others in the top it'll be even more difficult, so just keep being focused.
Thanks for the great time that you're giving us and God bless you!

You played beautifully, Roger. Shame Alexandr had to retire but you would have won anyway.
Good luck in the next round.xxx
