A perfect performance

23.06.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger did not have to work too hard today, defeating Adrian Mannarino 6-2, 6-3, 6-2 in 88 minutes to move on to round three.

"I've played on centre court for 10 straight years and it was really enjoyable, as usual, to be back there. I thought conditions were fantastic from start to finish. It was really perfect," Roger said. "It took me some time to get used to him, but I thought I played really, really well."

Roger's serve worked very well again today. He secured a break upon the first opportunity given in all three sets with Mannarino needing quite some time to score his first points on Roger's serve. All in all, it was an excellent display by our champ today under the roof in Wimbledon.

Roger will now meet 2002 Wimbledon finalist David Nalbandian on Saturday.

On radio this morning, they were calling Roger's performance immaculate and a stunning clinical dissection etc.

I've rewatched set 3 and then I rewatched that wonderful RG wave and the cheering for Roger (and of course for his French opponent) several times and the massive cheers they received as well after the match ended. It's so moving that they all love Roger so much and were willing to show it so passionately. You could see both the players were overwhelmed by the love given to them.

Fabulous win, Roger. Keep moving. Keep winning them all with your flawless aggressive plays to outlast them all. Be careful with the dangerous Nalbandy. Stay focus + outgun your sharp & precise shots to finish him in three. Wishing you + your team carry on your dream to be the best of best of all time.

You can do it, Roger. Just shine your best.
