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.

Congrats on your win against T. Schoorel... Improve your game to celestial heights - to a level where u can beat Rafa in straight sets.... Concentrate keenly on every aspect of your game & improve it thoroughly... The level of improvement Soderling, Djokovic, Berdych & Murray have shown must serve as an example for you.... Go Roger... I wish u a very good luck for your future games...
