Roger to play Chiudinelli

04.01.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger booked his spot in round two of the Qatar Open thanks to a 7-6(3), 6-3 victory over Thomas Schoorel (ATP 168).

The Dutch qualifier showed no fear in the first set, playing consistent tennis. Roger even had to deal with three set-points on his own serve at 4-5. Roger did not hesitate in the tie-break, though, clearly winning it 7-3. Roger then went on to break Schoorel's serve with his first break point in the match - going 3-1 up in the second set. Schoorel didn't find his way back after that, as Roger even showed his trademark between-the-legs winner as he served out the match.

Roger's opponent in the second round is his fellow countryman Marco Chiudinelli, also from the area of Basel (Switzerland), the two know each other since they were kids. The only encounter between the two players so far took place in Basel in 2009, with Roger defeating Chiudinelli in two sets.

Hello Roger
A magican with his magic racquet thrill their fans again during your first official match for 2011 I agree with you that this between the legs winner was special as it was so quick and instinctive, no preparation related to the ball clipping the net-brilliant.
What a thrill for Thomas playing his idol & role model in his first ATP match--he played very well especially the 1st set.Congratulations on your win and wishing you the very best for the second round

Congratulations, Roger, against an unknown opponent. They seem to be getting taller by the minute, but height, or any number of things are no match for you. It seemed to me you were pacing yourself well. Such an electrifying thing to watch you play. No matter what they say, there is only one GOAT, and the one they say is one is a goat on grass only. LOL....not bad player, though...
