Roger eases into round three

30.08.2014 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger has made it into the third round of the US Open without dropping a set, defeating big-hitting Australian Sam Groth 6-4, 6-4, 6-4.

“I thought I did pretty well from the start. I could have maybe been a bit better on my serve, but I thought it was an exciting match,” he commented.

Roger did not get into too much trouble with Groth's serves of up to 237 km/h. He earned break-balls right from the start and managed to convert to go 4-3 up and hold serve to take the set. He opened the second set with another break, only for Groth to do the same right afterwards. Roger broke again to go 5-4 up in games and then 2-0 in sets. In the third, Roger suddenly fouund himself trailing 2-4, only to secure 4 games in a row and then seal the victory after 1:48h of play.

He will now play Marcel Granollers (ATP 42) on Sunday for a place in the round of the last 16. He has won both encounters with the Spaniard so far.

Congrats gorgeous,

Loved the all black look and those trainers...boy wasn't it a full house. I was scared watching this match, SG was powerful. Sooo happy you did it in straight sets. Loved the first set, as i fell asleep afterwards. Night sessions are brill but the time difference sucks. Also, i hope you get to play some day matches too. Its not fair you're used to put bums on seats, cuz of your magic, all the time.

Please rest and see you in R3.

Love love love you xxxx

A solid performance from you,Roger. I absolutely loved your returning against Groth, your chip backhand suited to his serve. You got the break of serves at the right times. I am looking forward to your third round encounter against Granollers and COME ON ROGER!

Roger played a good match, now he's got to defeat Granollers.
I'm sure he'll do it in straight sets.
