15th victory in series

18.10.2006 | Tennis

Roger won his first indoor tournament match in almost a year at the Madrid Masters. He defeated the Olympic gold-medalist Nicolas Massu 6-3 and 6-2, taking home his 15th match in series.


It is is Roger's first indoor victory on the ATP tour since a five-set loss to Nalbandian in the Masters Cup final last November. "It's always nice to beat the Olympic champion," Roger said. "I think I played the big points better than he did. This is a good surface for my game, and it's a perfect result for the first round."


Roger's round-of-16 opponent will either be Robin Soderling or former No 1 Juan Carlos Ferrero - who eliminated our star in the semifinals on his way to the title in 2003. "At that time we were both fighting for Number 1 and he played really well then," Roger said of Ferrero. "I always enjoy playing against him, and any former No. 1."

Just watched the match against Soderling, what a close shave. I hope things go better next time. It seemed like hard work, I hope you are ok and just having an off day. Everyone gets that sometime, can't be perfect every day.
Good luck in the quarters

Yay, Roger! Well done! It'll be tough for Soderling or Ferrero to get past the true tennis master, albeit they are great players in their own rights. Go get 'em, Roger!

That was a subtle dig you made, Roger: "I always enjoy playing against him, and any FORMER No. 1"! At any rate, good luck in the second round!

God bless you,
Joreen :-D
