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.
