Roger rushes into round 2

28.05.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger started his 50th straight major by defeating Germany's Tomas Kamke (ATP 78) 6-2, 7-5, 6-3 at the French Open today - equalling Jimmy Connors' record of 233 Grand Slam match victories!

"I get a great deal of pleasure playing here. When I play well, the numbers come with me. It's great to have played and won here so often. I hope it continues," Roger said.

Roger scored three out of four break points in the opening set and continued well, securing the important points. He was always in charge, but nevertheless accumuluated over 40 unforced errors and missed several rather certain opportunities. He never got into danger, though, and wrapped up the match after 117 minutes on a sixth match point.

Roger will next face Adrian Ungur (ATP 92) of Romania who eliminated David Nalbandian in four sets.
