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.

With you always.

Nice work Champ! You got through with that scoreline at normal level. Of course, Ramos is a Clay specialist. Focus and prepare well for the Fognini match. Also, it's nice to see Gulbis back. He showed his talent when he beat you at Rome 2010. He should have been a top ten player by now. Somehow he faded into oblivion. If he is healthy and plays to his potential, I can see him facing you in the Semis. He didn't give a chance to Berdych today. But I'm very sure you're gonna win your 7th this year.

Great game today Roger, I think it is all uphill from here in your oponents and level of play, i think that your speed was good but against tougher components you will have to speed it up. Thanks for your greatness, always cheering.
