Quite a comeback

12.11.2006 | Tennis

Roger dropped the first set but won 10 of the last 11 games today to begin his Masters Cup campaign over holder David Nalbandian 3-6, 6-1, 6-1.

 

"I had to make him hit some errors - he wasn't doing that at the beginning," Roger commented. He lost his serve three times in a shaky opening set at the Qi Zhong stadium before throttling up his level in dramatic fashion. Ending the year atop the rankings for a third consecutive season, our star broke to start the second set against the Argentine who beat him in five sets at the season wrapup a year ago.

 

Roger  stormed to victory in one hour, 27 minutes, notching nine aces and 30 winners. It was Roger's 13th victory in only his fifth appearance at the Tennis Masters Cup.

Roger, nice warm-up set, and great finish. I really am pulling for you to win what is like a fifth grand-slam event with the focus on all 8 top players. Just think, after you win the tournament what a nice vacation you will have.

Hi to all the Aussie Tennis Masters fans. The slightly delayed coverage of the games are on the ABC channel 1230am, then on Foxtel at 6.00am. For live scores still best to refer to the ATP Website. Hope you're enjoying the matches between the top 8 men. B
