Roger overcomes Devvarman

22.02.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger defeated Somdev Devvarman 6-3, 6-3 today to reach the second round of the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.


"I've had some tough ones over the years here actually in the early round. That's why I don't judge my first rounds too harshly or whatever," Roger said after the match. "It's about coming through and giving yourself a second chance the next day and then kind of move on in the draw. Then if you're in the quarters or the semis, this is when I expect myself to play much better."

Roger committed a large number of unforced errors but always fought back when it mattered. He broke for 4-2 when Somdev Devvarman served a double fault which gave him a hold on the first set, and broke again in the fifth and ninth games of the second set to complete the 6-3, 6-3 win in 75 minutes of play.

Roger will now play Spain's Marcel Granollers on Wednesday.
