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."

Congratulations, Roger! - such a pleasure to watch your play against Massu!

Thank goodness you are taking no one for granted and continue to be the "piranha of points." Though you are a nonpareil in the stats, you do not approach your matches tha
