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."

Hi, my dear Rog, I am so happy for you. It was not easy for you since it is not a natural surface but you played grasiously as usual.

Please do not pay attention to all unmannered whistlers at the stadium. I can not wait until poor Rafael Nadal lea

Hi Roger,

Congrats for winning the 1st match..it's always great to get over the 1st match since it's often the toughest. Anything now is a bonus, so go all the way as usual!

Congratulations on a great start Roger. It was so good to see you again on TV! You were awesome, especially considering it was your first match in the tournament; some of your shots had me gasping.
Good luck in the next round, and please take extra good

Just seen a snippet of your game against Massu but guess that will be all I am able to see of this tournament. Leaving Vernet early tomorrow and not home in Windsor until after the weekend. I wish you all the very best and hope I will be toasting you on
