Perfect start into clay season

12.04.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger defeated Germany's Philipp Kohlschreiber (ATP 32) 6-2, 6-1 in the second round of the 1000-Masters in Monte Carlo today.


"I'm really just getting a feeling again for playing on clay here on Monaco and then obviously the next two weeks when I'm not playing any tournaments it's going to be really important for me to get a sense of how well I'm hitting the ball. I really want to get some good practice in to be in great shape for Madrid and Rome," Roger said after the match.

Our champion had Kohlschreiber running helplessly around center court and wrapped up the victory in just 50 minutes with his fifth ace of the match. Roger broke the German's serve early in both sets to give himself the advantage in each, and rescued the only break point against him with an ace.

Roger's next match will be on Thursday either against Marin Cilic or the winner of the match between Pere Riba and Potito Starace.

I beg you Federer KEEP playing like this.
Don't quarrel or fight with any one, so you can 100% concentrate and hit the ball like you only know how.

Really enjoyed watching you play against Philipp. Hope you will reproduce all your great shots against Marin tomorrow and that he doesn't pose you any problems. Love the spring strip you're wearing too. GO ROGER!

Lovely coloured shirt and lovely style. You look good in blue and it has been a lucky colour for you in the past. I am hoping it will be lucky for you this time. I never felt totally comfortable with you in yellow! Good luck against Cilic tomorrow, I am sure you will play well.

Wonderful start for the clay season Roger. The week will be the perfect test for your tennis, so we'll see if you are able to recover your best tennis for the upcoming, and tough, season.
Hope you do your best in the following matches. All the best, champ.

My Dear Roger,
Just Think about the title, 1st step: you should be 2en seed so you need 1000.
Nadal is nothing if you believe yourself.
