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.

Roger, you have to be confident playing against them and be very focused, because I know that your fulfillment and ours (fans) relies on winning more grand slams, particularly if you beat them.
I didn't see the whole match today, but from what I've seen, you are clearly searching for more aggressiveness and power. Even though the outcome in this match wasn't great, I feel that if you can perfect that strategy throughout the tournament you will be able to beat anyone, including Rafa and Djokovic.

Roger I haven't posted in a long time, but I think this is the right moment for doing so. You've had great success since the last US Open, but you must prepare yourself to beat Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, that would even give you more confidence.
To do so, you need to be more aggressive, play longer shots and have as less unforced errors as you can.
