Roger with a strong start

21.06.2011 | Starseite 2, Tennis


Roger has made a strong start into this year's tournament in Wimbledon with a 7-6(2), 6-4, 6-2 victory over Mikhail Kukushkinof of Kazakhstan.

"I thought I struggled putting enough returns into play in the first set but I thought he played very well and made it hard for me," Roger said. "He served well but I served very well myself. It was actually quite tricky on one end, very windy, which made it difficult to time the ball well but overall I'm pleased with my performance."

Roger's serve worked very well and helped him through the opening set. He still had to play strong to go all the way into the tie-brek which he clearly dominated 7-2 to take the set. Roger managed to hold an early break in the second set as he fought off break-points a bit later on. The last set seemed easy as he even seemed to test out a few things for the further matches at his favourite tournament.

Roger will meet the winner of the match between Adrian Mannarino and Conor Niland on Thursday. He has never played against either of the players.

Matches are going long on Center Court, you will be getting a late start. I hope you put Adrian away quickly for your sake.

I HAVE A QUESTION :

I KNOW THE COURTS IN WIMBLEDON HAVE SLOWED DOWN IMMENSELY OVER THE YEARS , BUT IF THE ROOF IS CLOSED :

DOES THIS MAKE THE CONDITIONS FASTER JUST LIKE INDOORS ?

DO THESE CONDITIONS FAVOUR ROGER , ESPECIALLY IF HE MEETS NADAL ?

Dear Roger:
My deepest wish is to see your two precious little girls looking at their dad holding the glittering trophy.
May God bless and guide you and may your angel be by your side.
Love you always,
marie in ttl.

The Eagle has landed
and will rise again
Nothing thats out, is missed
And nothings missed, thats in

Take your seat
for instant pleasure
The best public speaker
in all kinds of weather

His game's not bad either
Its drama, its ice-cream
theatre

The best that the Duchess and Duke has ever seen
They should know, they've been there before
Maybe, he'lll get a knighthood
from The Queen




Arise, Sir Roger
