Roger cruises through

25.06.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger won his opening match against Albert Ramos (ESP, 43) 6-1, 6-1,  6-1 in Wimbledon today, mking a perfect start to his quest for a record-tying seventh title.


"It's rare to be up in the scoreline like today on a regular basis. It is maybe why it is a good time to try it out, then you can use it in tougher moments, difficult moments, to throw your opponents off. Who knows if I'll need it down the stretch?, " Roger said.

He needed just 79 minutes to breeze through today. Roger dictated the match in all possible ways. He is now the most successful active player on grass with his 106th win on the surface. He said the ease of his win had given him a chance to practise his serve-and-volley game.

Next up is Fabio Fognini (ATP 68), against whom Roger has only played once, dropping just two games.

Like the fast and easy great masted sailing ship, Alinghi! Mooth, sharp, quick, precise, and playing some of your extra shots. There is more where that came from! It's not alwa easy to play against someone who is not a good matchup, but you did it admirably. I applaud, believe, and fully support your aspirations here for the title, for the ranking, for it all: another sustained flight! (Take the teeth out of the hit-hard-hitters and yellers, and the mindgame players, grunters, etc.) Thank you!
