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.

Congrats on setting a new record Roger. But it was quite tough going for you from the end of the second set. Hiccups in the first or second round is fine but against quality players it can turn costly. I have faith in you that you will win this time.
You are the best ever Roger.
All the best for the title.
Go for it champ.

Good result, but Federer is not in the "mood", or he is too relaxed or he is bored, I don't know, after Madrid his face is changed, maybe only in the begining of the tournament...
