Roger breaks Connors' record

30.05.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger beat Romania's Adrian Ungur 6-3, 6-2, 6-7(6), 6-3, today to book his spot in the third round at Roland Garros and also pass Jimmy Connors' record of 233 wins at majors!

"I expect myself to win and I usually manage to do it. It's not like that at the start of your career when you think you are good enough but you are not that good yet," Roger said after the match.

Roger was clearly in command in the first two sets, making a speedy way to victory today. But as the third set went into the tie-break Ungur first saved two match points to then come alive and take the match into a fourth set. But Roger soon managed his first break and left the Romanian no more room to catch up, wrapping everything up nicely after 2 hours 27 minutes.


Roger will face either Slovakia's Martin Klizan (ATP 70) or Nicolas Mahut (ATP 89) of France for a place in the last 16.

Dear Roger
Congratulations! You won and that's the most important! But I must say that you should have done it in straight sets! Anyway, it was a training for you! Hope you will stay healthy and fit for your next, young opponent!
Wish you all the best and good luck dearest Roger!
Go, Roger, goooooooooooo!
Love, Mimi

And he's through :). 6-3, 4-6, 6-2, 7-5. And by the way, it may look close, but to be honest, Roger was never in any real danger...

Dear Roger
Hope you are healthy and fit enough for your opponent! You look great, as well as Maria, I agree with Modesti! But it has nothing to do with the suit! There is something inside, especially you, that shines!! I thinkit's your beautiful soul!
Wish you all the best and good luck dearest Roger!
Go, Roger, gooooooooooooooo!
Love, Mimi
