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.

-1Fed1- If he wins the title, then I'll take your comment seriously. Right now Nadal and Djokovic can beat him if they attack his backhand and serve there constantly. It works on the break points too. That's the only way to beat him and they know it. So you have to be one step ahead of your competition and make sure you are solid on that wing.
