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.

The victory in three sets is good. More than 40 errors is not so good.
But this is the first week. Your best play will be needed next week.
I hope you are healthy and fit.
Best of luck, Roger.

We saw some excellent play and also some wobbly moments especially with the serve, but there was never any doubt of what the outcome would be. I would say it was a good warm-up game for you Roger. Well done, and congratulations on your win. It was wonderful to be able to watch you play, even if it was only on TV. I liked the anthracite kit with a touch of yellow and the black socks! The black was the right choice in the end. Have a good rest Roger and good luck for the next round!

Well done, Roger!
Nalbandian is out, and in the next round is my country fellow Adrian Ungur.
I hope watching a good match between you two next round.
