Roger advances

25.05.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 2

Roger defeated Maxime Teixeira 6-3, 6-0, 6-2 in his second match at the French Open today.

 

"It's so difficult to come out and play on a big court when you are not used to it," said Roger of his 22-year-old opponent. "I'm playing here for the 12th year and I'm very experienced."


Our champion was broken once early in the first set but fought back and captured the set after 33 minutes. In the second set Roger found back to his usual strength - securing three breaks and taking the set 6-0. Roger left Teixeira without any chance in the final set and used his third match ball to win his second match in Roland Garros.


Roger will now face Janko Tipsarevic (ATP 29), our champ leads the head-to-head 3:0.
