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.

You could make that shot simply a forehand but then it wouldn't be necessary a winner shot!!! Thank you for that;) I followed the shot in the youtube.
You are the master of tennis and you do not deserve being #2. Hope you can get it back and every things go well in this new year.
Good luck for the next match.

Thank you, Roger, and congratulations. Always a difficult match, when you play for the first time an opponent. And a good one, this Schoorel.
Onwards, Roger, all the best today against Marco. God bless you.
