Roger advances to second round

16.08.2006 | Tennis

Roger survived an early scare as he began defense of his Western & Southern Financial Group Masters title with a straight-sets win Tuesday night. Roger beat Paradorn Srichaphan of Thailand 7-5, 6-4 two days after winning the 40th title of his career Sunday in Toronto. He is 55-0 in North America since a first-round loss in this Cincinnati-area tournament in August 2004.

 

"I was very worried today. The court was fast, he was playing very well, and I had a bad feeling when I was down in that first set," Roger said. "I thought this match could be over in a hurry, the other way."

 

Roger will meet Andy Murray in round two. Murray won the second prestigious match against Tim Henman (4-6, 6-4, 7-5). Roger and Murray last played each other in the final in Bangkok, where the Swiss star won 7-5, 6-3.
