Roger gave Switzerland a 1-0 lead over Serbia in the Davis Cup World Group playoffs, defeating Janko Tipsarevic 6-3, 6-2, 6-2. Roger served 14 aces to win in 1 hour, 27 minutes.

 

"I was in charge the whole match. I made it easy on myself and hard for Janko," Roger said.

 

Janko Tipsarevic enjoyed the lesson - and certainly stayed in a good mood. He had a smile over his whole face after playing and impressive stop-ball in the third set leaving Roger no chance, for example.

 

"It was a lot of pressure playing Roger on center court," Tipsarevic said. "Everybody knows he's the most complete player, maybe of all time. The thing that surprised me was his return. He scored at least two points on my serve every time. I had to fight for every point I made. It tired me out."

 

The spectators cheered frenetically for Roger. He has added three Grand-Slam titles to his list of victories since his last appearance in Geneva precisely a year ago. Roger also enjoyed the atmosphere and thanked the fans for their great support.

Dearest Roger,

Congratulations on your win! I was hoping that Wawrinka would win but he was playing against a very good up and coming player. I must say he did very well though. Now you have to win the doubles match and your match against Djokovic for
