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.

I'm not watching the match but am pretty sure Nadal might have taken lot of time between crucial points in the 2nd set

I'm watching the Nadal-Roddick match on ATP TV and I've been inserting comments in their Cover it Live thread. Every time I mention Rafa's cheating they don't post it. Finally I sent a post asking if I said Rafa was the greatest player ever and a god would they post it? And they sent me secret message in red saying that sometimes there are so many comments that they can't post them all. What a joke. They are so pro-Rafa. Sickening. GO ROGER!

I agree LUCAYA. How very strange! RN winning the Stephan Edberg trophy ????? I thought it was for sportmanship? I never saw much of it when RN plays. It's always me, me, me... I take my sweet time between points, and I take TO when I am losing. It's pretty sad.
