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.

Hi Roger, just looked at the weather forecast and it's supposed to be better than today, altho not over-warm so should be in your favour. All luck against Tipsy but we all know he can be dangerous so bring out your best tennis!! GO ROGER for the sake of tennis. xxx

i forgot the most important thing. GOOD LUCK AGAINST TIPSY. you said in one of your interviews you are a happy father and the girls are getting cuter every day. your fans are really happy for you. we want you happy in family and in tennis. mcenroe said he can't believe you have kept your focus for so long and how lucky we are to be here to see you. he is so right. we are lucky.

maestro, that was pretty to look at. poor tex had no chance. **TO THE REST OF THE FEDERERHOLICS** isn't this a strange FO for nadal. when andujar didn't close at 5:1 40-love, i said he will not win this set. that is why players like that never get to be champions. had the set in his hands so many times & couldn't close. isn't tennis funny. january- nadal unbeatable- rafa slam? may- espn saying nadal #1 for now. they have already replaced him with djoker. roger was right. tennis moves fast.

Keep moving. Keep being aggressively to swept them all. Please don’t be careless with Tippi. Armed yourself with your dictate serves and strokes. Keep cool + focus. Hoping that you + your team set up superb game plans + tactics to oust him in three. Good luck.
