Roger defeats Ferrer

22.11.2010 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger got off to a great start at the ATP World Tour Finals in London, defeating David Ferrer 6-1, 6-4 in his first match at the season-ending event.


"I'm really happy the way I was able to get out of the first match here," Roger said. "Looking at the scoreline, it doesn't reflect how tough it was. Usually 6-1, 6-4 kind of matches take an hour of play. Here, it took one hour 25 minutes I think."

Roger wasted no time and opened up a 4-0 lead in the first set. But it did not take long for Ferrer to fight back and score a break himself. But Roger simply increased the level of play and broke again in a marathon sixth game, which included six deuces, before serving out the set.
The second set was another tough run, with Roger managing to break away with a 3-2 lead. Ferrer earned himself several break points until the end of the set - three alone upon Roger's final serve at 5-4 - but was not able to convert any of them as Roger kept his poise and finally clinched the win with an ace.

Roger will now face Britain’s Andy Murray at the round-robin tournament on Tuesday. Murray defeated Robin Söderling 6-2, 6-4 on Sunday.

Thank you, Roger, and congratulations for the great match, and for your award. You deserve ALL the awards, but we can nothing against politics, unfortunately.

God bless you, our boy, and onwards today against Murray.

Congrat. Awesome victory. Keep moving on, Roger.

Murray is so good in defensive. But I do believe in you + Paul will prepare superb game plans to oust him tonight. Rock him endlessly with your precisely serves and overpower him with your powerful & flawless kind of tennis. Attack him hard to win the first set and so on. Keep calm & focus. Meditation briefly will refresh your mentality and energy.

Let rock the O2 this year and be the Champ of all the best ones, Roger.
