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 wish I had seen the match ! Congratulations Roger! Things are not always what they seem and as you say, it was a tough enough match for you... but you won and thank God and thank you Roger.
As many people have said, watch for AM. The long rallies, attacks at your backhand to force errors. What a terrible way to play tennis.
Get him back good for saying ridiculous things when at 10 Dowing street. The nerve!!
Roger, PATIENCE, do not lose your focus even for a SPLIT SECOND. love you.

If our Champ has his A-game on tomorrow, no wonder if he brushed AM aside in straights, like AO finals.
